A discography lists the names of artists’ albums and singles, along with the dates of release, track listings, and sometimes the recording locations. Some artists include songwriting credits in their releases; others do not. In addition, some artists list their album titles differently depending on whether it is a compilation album or a regular album. Albums are listed chronologically within each genre. Singles are usually listed separately, although there are exceptions.
The most common way to organize a discography is alphabetically by artist name. This method makes sense because many people use the same music player across platforms; however, some artists change their names over time, making such a system difficult to maintain. For example, “Luther Vandross”, “Vandross”, “Vanessa Williams”, and “Williams” are four different singers with the same name. To avoid confusion, another method is to organize the discography by genre, followed by chronological listing of albums. This allows the reader to easily find out what type of music an artist produces without having to look up individual artists.
Some artists produce both studio albums and live albums, and in those cases, the studio album is often preceded by a live album. Discographies typically list the studio album first, followed by the live album. However, this is not always the case; for example, Bruce Springsteen’s 1999 album Tunnel of Love contains no live tracks and his 2008 album Working on a Dream includes one live track.
In addition to the above methods, discographies may be organized according to the following principles:
* Artist name
* Release date
