Elton John - GYBR - Lots of artists credited in error

Just happened to look at my double CD rip of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, and was astonished to see lots of different artists appearing in the credits - some of which are shown in the screen grab below

I have checked and my metadata is correct, and the artists do not appear in the edit album list of artists.

Please correct the underlying metadata

Just noticed this issue extends into the composer and producer credits as well

Same here on my rip.

Apparently they appear on the 40th Anniversary super deluxe edition (2014).

Even if you edit > identify with another version, you get the extra credits.

Cheers Brian I’ll fire up a proper computer and edit.

Good luck, I got rid of 60 odd but I wasn’t rigourous.

Both Musicbranz and Allmusic look ok, so not sure where the mix-up is happening.

Hopefully the Roon guys can fix
