Talk:Asbury Park Live

From This Might Be A Wiki

Is there some rule against creating new tracks for live albums?--MidoFS (talk) 11:53, 16 March 2022 (EDT)

No formal rule, but those song pages tend to bloat the site (between categories, song chronologies, new lyrics pages, etc) without really adding anything of value. I don't think nowadays we would have created pages for the songs on TMBG Unlimited - The Ritz Show or TMBG Unlimited - The Flood Show either, but it was more notable back then in the early days of downloading for TMBG to release a full show. At this point they've done it nearly 100 times, counting the 2004-07 show downloads. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 12:06, 16 March 2022 (EDT)
Yeah I feel these songs and the Williamsburg ones aren't exactly page-worthy. TitanicFog (talk) 12:57, 16 March 2022 (EDT)
I'm surprised the At Large songs have their own pages!--You&Me!! (talk) 13:55, 16 March 2022 (EDT)
It's tough determining where to draw the line, but I think in the case of At Large, the compact disc + streaming release made it more noteworthy than a download of single show recording. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 14:07, 16 March 2022 (EDT)
^ this. physical media and the fact that it's an intentional compilation of live tracks, rather than a document of a concert, make a solid argument for the individual songs being worthy of recognition. --ant 14:13, 16 March 2022 (EDT)
At Large was a proper live album full of original artwork, a catalog number, and a physical release. TitanicFog (talk) 15:08, 16 March 2022 (EDT)
Understood. Is there some way to indicate how many live recordings of songs have been officially released, or is that too complicated?--MidoFS (talk) 22:08, 16 March 2022 (EDT)
