Zoth Ommog releases:
http://www.zoth-ommog.de/main/releases/049_cd_zot_101.html

Vinyl colour first - Format FTF according to 6.1.7.
/ with spaces between two words - 1.2.3.

Changed format to expanded version ([g=6.1.2. ] "The expanded method is the preferred one.")

2.13.2. Use a "Heading" whenever there is a block of text on the release that is descriptive of the tracks below, but is not the title of a musical piece (...) To separate subsequent tracks which are not part of the Heading, add a blank Heading containing a single dash (-) after the last track in the group.

Titles according to guideline 1.8.2 & 1.8.2b

Label - https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/759104 + profiles of both Dependent (2) and Dependent Records updated.

LCCN - on Specialty Records Corporation profile we can read:
(Not a record label: use only as Manufacturer / Pressed By ("(SP)" or "SP") / Duplicated By / Glass Mastered At)
Manufacturer / Pressed By tags are for vinyl
Duplicated By - cassette
Glass Mastered At - CD

There are some releases with SRC in matrix but pressed by different company, so it's better to use Glass Mastered At tag, as it's advised in profile.

https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/795405

LCCN - Cinram, Olyphant, PA profile updated
("If the release has a mastering SID code of "L901" to "L903", "L908" or "L909" but lacks any mention of WEA Mfg. Olyphant, then please enter:
Glass Mastered At – Cinram, Olyphant, PA
A mould SID code of IFPI 2U** and, sometimes, a machine-stamped 'CI' also indicates that the disc was pressed at Cinram, Olyphant, PA.")

bold text: ...

LCCN - mould SID code assigned to EDC, Germany. Discs have black underside - matrix and mastering SID codes are not visible, but Out Of Line releases in this timeline were always made by EDC, Germany.

+ not 'white label' with print RSG §6.12.4.

Where the release is from a label with an identifiable country, use that as the country for the file based release. Where the labels country is not known, or when it is worldwide, don't enter any country.
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/363446#3376485

In short, for file-based releases, we are to place in the Country field the country of the copyright holder (of the releasing label or, if self-released, the artist's country). Alternately, we can also leave that field blank.
