  • Attention.png This month's cleanup is Benny Goodman, things that need to be done are at /BennyGoodman and you can discuss issues there or in [the forum].

Rougly every month or so a new artist is chosen from a list of nominations to be the subject of Cleanup of the Month. The aim is was work as a team to provide the most complete discography possible for a major artist in about one month. Good candidates for CotM should be well-known artists that have messy and incomplete MusicBrainz entries.

Each collaboration can be organised and discussed in its own wiki page and forum topic.

Nominations for Cleanup of the Month

Blood, Sweat & Tears
Well known artist, but with a messy and incomplete discography.
Bruce Springsteen
Well known artist, the 3rd. Really bad style and lots of bootlegs. Shepard
Jimi Hendrix
mister Matt Perry on forum :D Mdhowe
The Who
I think it would be a good challenge; normal bootlegs and official bootlegs (if there is such a thing).
Status Quo
Well known artist, lots of bootlegs. Nine99
John Williams
Similar to Morricone in the number of entries, and the types of issues. Also, there are at least 8 different John Williams in the database, so easy potential for incorrect artist attributions between them.

Ooh, I like this idea. --kuno.
Non-Album Tracks
Sen suggested in IRC that we have a CotM specifically for NATs, to clean the accumulated ones that are junk, or have since been released on official releases. -- BrianSchweitzer 03:43, 02 September 2007 (UTC)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
