Can you create an entry for this alternate title?

I'm fairly sure that this is not the correct protocol but people are getting better results and feedback when they make these types of requests in this forum.

The Paul Desmond album First Place Again (http://www.allmusic.com/album/first-p...) was later released under an alternate title East Of The Sun. That fact is referenced in the last line of your review. But there are no listings under that title and I had a difficult time finding it.

The review says that the track list is altered, and I don't own a copy, but here's a listing from a retail outlet url=http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo... that would provide enough information for a brief entry.

Andy, basic search still wouldn't be able to find the alias title even if it were added as a release. See https://getsatisfaction.com/allmusic/...

That's unfortunate. The alternative is to create a separate entry for it. There are plenty of those, either accidental or intentional. As long as the relationship between the two albums is clearly spelled out I don't have a problem with it. Unfortunately all too often it's not mentioned that an album is a re-release under a new title and there can be decades between the two release dates, making it hard to match them up.

I've done my job. AMG can decide how or if they want to address this issue.

Just backing up my claims with entries I've looked at today:

Booker Little - Victory & Sorrow / Booker Little & Friend
Command All-Stars - Persuasive Percussion / Persuasive Percussion Vol. 1
Ace Of Base - The Sign / Happy Nation
Henry 'Red' Allen - World On A String / Ride, Red, Ride In Hi-Fi
Luther Allison - Love Me Papa / Standing at the Crossroad
