  • Use the "live" attribute when the performance had an audience at the time it occurred, i.e. was not prerecorded.
  • For live recordings, the end date is usually the same as the start date. For most live albums from a single concert starting close to midnight and ending early in the morning, it's OK to just use the start date of the event on all concert recordings.
  • Because the lyrics are important to karaoke versions of a song (the intention is that someone would sing them over the karaoke track), karaoke versions should not be marked with the “instrumental” attribute. Note that in addition to this recording relationship, you should also link a karaoke track to the original recording with the Karaoke Version Relationship Type.
