In MusicBrainzTerminology, a recording represents unique audio data. It has a title, an artist credit, a duration, and a list of PUIDs and ISRCs.
The documentation for this entity seems to be lacking currently. There is not yet a list of Recording Edit Types or Recording Edits? This page also needs NeedsIntertwingling.
This MusicBrainz database entity is part of the Next Generation Schema (NGS) that went live in May 2011.
These are all different Recordings:
- Album version of the track "Into the Blue" by "Moby"
