Notations Key & Clarifications

 

Artist/Group Discographies / Album Credits

 

A link to an artist's/group's discography on Amazon.com is provided with the following exceptions:

o        Amazon hasn't created one. These links connect to a search for the artist's/group's albums on Amazon.com & are followed by "(Search)" (i.e. Annick Gagnon).

o        The artist/group doesn't sell any of their albums on Amazon. The link will take you to a list of their albums on their site. (i.e. Tom Callinan)

 

If either of the above situations changes, discography links will be added or changed.

 

Some discography links may be followed by an alternate name for an artist/group (i.e. Kaci Battaglia when the artist is known as "Kaci"). It may be that the artist/group went by more than one name. In any case, these variations are provided to show that they are all connected to the same artist/group.

 

Some listings may contain multiple discographies (i.e. Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers). This occurs when a solo artist is credited with tracks on an album, but we have yet to purchase any of that artist's solo albums. If the number of tracks the solo artist receives credit for is less than half of the total on the group's album, his/her discography will be relocated to its own listing if/when an album is bought and the album will remain under the group's listing.

 

Albums with multiple artists sharing equal credit for that album will appear under each artist's listing with credit given to their partner(s) in parenthesis following the album's title. (i.e. Jerry Garcia & David Grisman)

 

Album Availability

 

Titles that can be purchased through one of Amazon's sites will be linked to that site. If it is linked to an Amazon site outside of the US (i.e. Amazon Canada, Amazon Germany, Amazon Japan, Amazon UK), a notation as such will appear after the album title: "Available through Amazon UK". If one of these import albums becomes available through the US Amazon site, their links will be changed and their foreign availability notation will be removed.

 

If a title is only available through the artist's/group's website, the link will take you to that site. A notation as such will also appear under the artist's/group's listing.

 

If a title has no link, it is not available for purchase from Amazon.

 

If all else fails, we recommend either purchasing albums through one of Amazon's "trusted sellers" (linked on each album's listing on Amazon) or sites such as eBay or SecondSpin.

 

Album Formats & Categories

 

Notations will appear in parentheses following the album's title if an album…

o        Is "Remastered" or "Live"

o        Is a "CD Set", a "Box Se", "Single", or an "EP"

 

For descriptions of these notations, consult Amazon's Buying Guide page.

 

The following notations were created to enhance this site, but are not included in Amazon's listings:

o        "2 albums on 1 CD" and "2 (or more) albums in a Box Set". These clarified what is found with the physical album's case/box.

o        "Christmas". The most wonderful time of the year!

o        "Disney Parks". These albums contain music from the Disney parks (past and present) that you can buy for your very own!

 

If an album fits into multiple categories (i.e. an "Original Cast Recording" that is also a "Disney Parks" exclusive), it will be listed in both categories with the notation of other categories it appears under in parenthesis after the album's title. (i.e. Festival of the Lion King)

 

Last CD Added Date

 

Located at the bottom of each category and letter listing page, this indicates when a new CD was last added to that page. For a complete list of recent CD's added to the site, see the site's Main Page.
