Credit Where Credit Is Due

Credit Where Credit Is Due is an initiative to promote the inclusion of credits for the various roles of music production staff within digital music download files (or alternatively, linked to an on-line database). Currently, those responsible for the artistic and technical achievements involved in contemporary music production go completely unrecognised.

These credits, included as standard practice in the sleeve notes and artwork of CD’s and vinyl albums, are currently completely unavailable when digital downloads are purchased by the general public.

The MPG seeks to rectify this short-coming by urging all consumers and recording artists to make their voices heard to the industry which is responsible for the distribution of recorded music.

The MPG’s Mastering Group has been working to achieve a connection between music audio files and a central database of credit data. Read about it here.
