This links two recordings or two releases, where one is a remaster of the other. This is usually done to improve the audio quality or to adjust for more modern playback equipment.

- All remasters should link to the earliest released version.
- A release-release relationship does not imply that every recording on the release has been remastered from the earlier release. It only indicates that some of the recordings on the later release have been remastered from the earlier release. Therefore, when the data is available, the release annotation should be used to document further mastering information for the tracks.
- If the music has been re-recorded, not remastered, then the Other Version Relationship Type should be used.
The recording-recording remaster relationship type is deprecated. See the Recordings Style Guideline for further information.
