Hi Dustin, 

Thanks for reporting. It could be a 'bug' or a copyright restriction issue. I'll ask the data team.

I'm trying to do the same thing for Tengger Cavalry's discography, and keep getting 404 errors.

Having the same issue trying to add the artwork for July Talk's extended edition album (a whole other problem is it's not recognized as a release despite the album having two releases a year apart on different labels with different tracklistings).  I click upload image and it just spins and spins....

I doubt it's a band issue and can rectify that since I'm friendly with the band and its management.

This is the album (I'm somehow the only one making a distinction?)

This is the label site that displays it as an extended edition and has artwork, as well as tracklisting
http://sleepless-records.com/store/

Original out of print edition and tracklisting (it has 3 less songs)

Hi Amber, 

It must have been a temporary issue with the image uploader. If there are any legal restrictions on artist images, we will make a note on the artist page wiki and remove the upload button so you don't waste your time trying to upload and reporting the issue like Philip. Pages having image restrictions is a very rare occurrence so you shouldn't find more than a handful of artists affected by it.

If I understood correctly, The extended edition does not appear on the artist album catalogue? For this to happen there needs to be a release entry on musicbrainz. Last.fm will also import the track-list and release date within a couple of weeks.

I hope this helps Amber.

But the extended edition is already there.  It's grouped under the original release of the album on music brainz but it is certainly there.

Here is another one (slightly different). When I go to http://www.last.fm/music/Tengger+Cavalry/kAAn/+images/upload to upload the cover I get a 404 after the upload is complete.

Yep. Image upload for http://www.last.fm/music/Tengger+Cavalry has been restricted... upload buttons shouldn't be displayed. Team is working on it.
