CollaborationOfTheMonth > The Beatles
This page is now obsolete. It is preserved here for future reference.
The CollaborationOfTheMonth for November-December 2006 was The Beatles. In the 2 months or so that the collaboration ran, 1511 edits were made. At the time, this accounted for 20% of all edits on this artist since MusicBrainz' inception.
- There appear to be quite a few bootleg releases that do not belong in this category. Try to find releases that have mostly previously released material and change them to compilations.
- By convention releases that combine two (or more) albums are also entered as albums. There are at least several Russian bootlegs that include all the tracks from two Beatles albums, so I guess they are still entered as albums. - ssundell
- Official albums could be linked to their respective Wikipedia and Discogs pages.
- ASINs need to be added to official releases.

Tony Sheridan & The Beatles/Beat Brothers
- Sort out the early German releases as referenced here & here where The Beatles were known as The Beat Brothers.
- Some of the same material was later re-released as The Beatles. Which name do we use?
- I've entered some tracks under Tony Sheridan & The Beatles for now.
Correct Song Titles
Kansas City / Hey Hey Hey Hey
- It is unclear whether or not Medley: should be prepended to the title.
- It is also unclear what (if anything) should separate the Heys.
- From Wikipedia: "Kansas City/"Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey" medley was originally listed only as "Kansas City". After the attorneys for Venice Music did their job, the record label was corrected, but not the album cover.
- This label image clearly shows the title as Kansas City. I have not been able to find an image of the 'corrected' label.
Take out Some Insurance on Me Baby (If You Love Me Baby)
- This correct title(s) of this track is unknown. Label images are hard to come by as it was a b-side.
- Alternate titles
- Take out Some Insurance on Me Baby (If You Love Me Baby)
- Take out Some Insurance on Me Baby
- If You Love Me Baby
- If You Love Me, Baby
- If You Love Me Baby (Take out Some Insurance on Me Baby)
