Talk:Mystery Disc

From Zappa Wiki Jawaka
Jump to navigation Jump to search

There was a "Mystery Disc" in 1985, together with the first "Old Masters". There was a "Mystery Disc 2" in 1986, together with the second "Old Masters". And then there was the "Mystery Disc" CD... emdebe

So why do they not have their own pages? Why delete the track listing for the CD version when that is the version that most people will have and the version they can still buy today? Why is this discography a constant source of frustration for me? Why should I (or anybody else) bother with any of this?

FROM THE willie the pimp PAGE

But I only have the Mystery Disc CD! Why can't we have a link to the Mystery Disc CD? Why is this Discography so painfully labyrinthine? - Duncan 13:08, 7 Aug 2005 (PDT)

It doesn't have to be: that's what "disambiguation pages" are for, I guess... There are after all 2 seperate albums (LPs) and only 1 CD, right? --Emdebe 13:15, 7 Aug 2005 (PDT)

If we are excluding obscure Japanese versions...

(Note the Wiki Wiki reference :-)

... but should the Discography give priority to what is available now or to original releases...?

I can imagine that the Wiki "community" will be divided (again) over this one...
Contrary to you ("Why is this Discography so painfully labyrinthine?"), I'm in a rather good mood today... ;-)
so I could settle for 1 page (that mentions the existence of two albums, of course).
Nice word though, "labyrinthine"... ;-)

So, some time ago (see above), you were frustrated because there were multiple pages.
Now you are frustrated because there is only one page.
Is this becoming a hobby, or something?
What exactly is it what you want?
Why can't you just recreate the CD track list, if it means so much to you?

Where? Where do you see me objecting to multiple pages. I have always argued for a page per disc - that way you end up with a Discography rather than the Title-ography that we have now (or even worse a Some-title-that-is-vaguely-similar-ography)

I did add the CD track listing but you decided to delete them.

Once again.... I give up!

Feel free to continue to do whatever it is that you want to do here.

Not the best way to try and work things out, is it?
Ever considered that there might have been a misunderstanding?
Are you sure everybody understands what you mean with "Title-ography" and "Some-title-that-is-vaguely-similar-ography"?
