This is not shellac. It is a Metrolite pressing, which is flexible plastic material and which more closely matches "vinyl" under format.

g=1.2.2.c], hyphenations should start with a capital letter. The rest of the words capitalization should follow as on the release, except where all caps have been used, which should be turned to lower case.

g=10.4.2], added unlinked credits where necessary per in order to replicate the complete writer credit as it is formatted on the release.

We do not add track positions to the publishing "free" text fields under LCCN: https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/414503#3839678

7-inch Titles:
g=3.2.2.a.], if the release is a single or EP without a picture sleeve, use the main track title as the title for the release.

g=3.2.2.b], if the release is a 78, and there are track titles on each side of the record, use both track titles as the title for the release, separated by a slash.

Track postitions corrected:
g=12.2.9], the standard Discogs positions are A1, A2…, B1, B2…

BaOI:
Moved static data up in BAOI so that nothing needs to get moved again when adding new variants: https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/786274#7802724.

Side ID:
g=12.2.7]. For side identification, please use A, B, etc. in place of 1, 2, One, Two, Side One, Side Two, etc., including variations in any language.

Track Titles:
g=12.4.4], only the track titles should be listed in the track title field. Please make a note of extra information in the Release Notes, not in the track title.

Credits:
g=10.4.2], added unlinked credits in order to replicate the complete writer credit as it is formatted on the release.

Transliterations:
g=1.8.2.b]: when entering multiple languages, enter titles into the fields using an “ = ” between languages.

g=2.13.1], when an artist is presented as "Name1 (Name2)" or "Name 1 AKA Name 2"...the name in brackets, or after 'aka', is an alias and it can optionally be credited on a separate line.

Format messages:
g=6.10], single tags are only used where it is factual, ie: a citation is required.

u=8.1.1], approximate year of release added to distinguish this variant from others that may still be added to the same Master View and help put them into chronological order.

Price Code: use both for actual codes and for prices, cf. Forum Discussion at https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/762786 and staff member Diognes_The_Fox agreeing with loukash here: https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/750332?page=3#7546915

ANVs that are either the surname alone (or misspellings thereof) or include the real forename (or initials thereof) always belong to the real name alias per staff ruling https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/333683#3121316

Mono tag incorrectly suggests there is also a stereo pressing, which there is not.
