Annotations overview



Annotations are text fields, functioning like a miniature wiki, that can be added to any existing Artists, Releases, Labels or Tracks.

Their purpose is to add information that usually doesn't fit into the strict structural data schema of MusicBrainz (be it due to technical limitations that may be addressed later, or because the information in itself has to be free-text).

The content of an annotation can be edited by any MusicBrainz user. Like the rest of the database, if something is incorrect or incomplete, you can fix it. All changes are recorded and if someone deletes or defaces the annotation, you can easily restore a previous copy.
