Could we just mention that Karen Carpenter's album was posthumous?[edit]

The way it's written now, it seems like she recorded her solo debut in 1996. She died in 1983. She recorded it in 1980 and it was released posthumously. Of course, we could always take that (1996) off the end of the sentence and just link directly to the album's page... either way would be more clear. (talk) 10:52, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

To (album) or not to (album)?[edit]

When I created Still Crazy After All These Years (album) it was because it had been requested and there are a (nonexistent) link to it in Paul Simon under Discography. I put "(album)" on the end because that's the way it was in the link and in the other links I looked at (Graceland (album), Paul Simon (album)).

Now I see that not all the links have "(album)" after them and that perhaps "(album)" was added to disambiguate them. When I found the non-album article (which was nothing more than "It's an album") I thought I'd just redirect it. This also came about because typing "still crazy after all these years" into the Wikipedia search didn't go to my article.

Now my article has been copied to the non-album title, which I kind of understand. "Paul Simon" can be the artist or the album. But "Still Crazy..." can be the album or the song.

So instead of flipping each other's articles back and forth, let's talk about what's best. I vote for consistency and use the "(album)" form.

  • I'm always forgetting this myself, but the Wikipedia guideline is to not pre-emptively disambiguate. In other words, the album was here first to leave the name as-is. If and when someone writes an article about the song, then they can disambiguate that article by appending " (song)". -- Gyrofrog (talk) 07:23, 17 September 2005 (UTC)

Later link?[edit]

Should someone mention the Beach Boys reunion/comeback-attempt "Still Cruisin' After All These Years"?

No. -Ashley Pomeroy (talk) 17:08, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
