MONSTER WORLD COMPLETE COLLECTION ORIGINAL SOUND TRACK is WM-0565~6

I'd recommend we follow the standard of only having changed numbers after the tilde.

We could change the policy so that we follow what's written on the obi, but keep in mind that if we do so, we'd have to be consistent across all entries in our database. This means going over all previous entries to account for variations such as the ones I've listed.

(Another possible solution is to have an optional "catalog variation" field, like how artist name variations are handled)
