Labels and catalog numbers
Releases may be associated with multiple labels and catalog numbers, so the fields for specifying these is a little different.

- The MBID of the label.

A release may be credited to multiple artists via what is known as an "artist credit." To specify the artists a release is credited, you can use the following fields:
- The MBID of the artist
- The name of the artist, as credited on the release. Optional, if omitted it will default to the artist's current name
- An optional phrase to join this artist with the next artist. For example, you could use " & " to join "Calvin" with "Hobbes" to get the final text "Calvin & Hobbes"
Tracklists and Mediums
As with labels above, their may be multiple mediums and tracklists may contain multiple tracks, so again you will need to fill in the n and m parameters accordingly.
