Ed Starink (keyboardist, songwriter & producer)

~ Person


His cover versions albums were published under numerous names. (...) and "1492 Conquest of Paradise - Music of Vangelis" by "Space 2000", better known as "Conquest of Paradise 2000". The quite misleadingly marketed "Space 2000" album probably caused more misunderstandings about the origin of its recordings than any other cover album did before.
(quoted from Elsewhere: The independent Vangelis website)

It's the current consensus of MusicBrainz editors (see, for example edit: #62229985) that when Starink interprets classical works, they should be entered into MusicBrainz following the Classical Guidelines, that is the Track artist should be the composer and not Starink. Please follow this convention, and if you disagree, come and talk about it with the community, don't just change it.
