Compilation Relationship Type Track-Track Work-Work and Recording-Recording Designates that a single entity (i.e. not more than one recording/work) draws from multiple entities. Thus: a specific Recording from several Recordings; it won't be Works in this case, because that would be a Medley (at least for conversion to NGS). In converting data, will be converted to a Recording-Recording AR, since Work-Work is more likely to be Medley.
Cover Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording
DJ Mix Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording
Earliest Release Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording Deprecated AR Type: such recordings should be merged
Karaoke Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording
Mash-up Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording
Medley Relationship Type Track-Track Work-Work Medley requires a new performance, according to Mix Terminology, so the audio data is not the same -- hence should be Work-level.
Other Version Relationship Type Track-Track Work-Work Should now just mean "same Work"; should be merged - deprecated
Remaster Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording
Remix Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording
Samples Relationship Type Track-Track Recording-Recording Sampling refers to actual audio data, hence recording for the source. The choice of specific recording to sample from wouldn't change the work (i.e. two Recordings which each sample a different Recording could still be the same Work; hence Recording for the sampling entity.
