Purpose

Remember that just because the catalog number is the same format does not mean that this is the definite label, this is merely guide to help you find further proof on the internet or other sources. Labels may also use more than format, feel free to add more than one example. Different countries of release may have different formats so be sure for example to separate Sony USA from Sony Japan if you can. This isn't the place to debate which label is a distributor of which, just link the catalog number to the name that commonly shows up next to the number on the spine of the album (it's frequently the distributor rather than the holding company).
