Topic: Permanent/whole album instrument credits
Something just came to my mind: in the case of bands where certain members always (or almost always) play certain instruments, is it necessary to add each member's instrument credit to each release? I'm thinking of the case of THE ALFEE, where in the back of the booklet for all their releases (or at least the ones I've seen) it identifies the members as vocalists and bass, acoustic and electric guitarists, respectively. They usually have a single drummer and keyboardist perform with them on the whole release (rarely do they have track-by-track instrument credits). Is it proper to just add the same people as instrument credits to each recording on a release or should the musicians' names be added in the annotation box? It is currently not possible to add individuals' names as musician credits on the release level.
