Default Question regarding WipeoutXL/2079 (PC/Saturn version)

I was wondering if this should be posted as a separate entry to WipEout 2097 - The Soundtrack. The reason I mention this is, in case some of you didn't know, there is the PC and Sega Saturn version of the game that had music exclusively by the band CoLD SToRAGE. Here's a bit more info:

It's a Redbook audio; the tracks played off of the CD during gameplay. Anywho, I was just wondering why this particular version of the album hasn't been posted here, perhaps overlooked? Perhaps it isn't supposed to be? Idk.

At the moment, I believe VGMdb is for cataloguing official soundtracks whether they are in hard copy format (e.g. Audio CD) or officially available as a download for a fee (e.g. iTunes) or made available for free by the artist him/herself.

Redbook audio tracks therefore do not count as official.

More discussions here and here.

Redbook audio tracks are official; it's just that they're not contained under albums, they're actually contained under media (albums can be defined as collections of media).

Once we have a media table, we'll be able to start cataloging those.

I have a question regarding Redbooks audio.

I am agree they are "official", but most of the time, tracklist is not available (and often composers credits/breakdown (even if this can be find with a little research).

My question is, how tracklist/content of the redbook will be implanted..?
Will it always be in the form of "01 Data Track, 02 untitled, 03 untitled..." ?
How do you guys will know if the tracklist was "fan-made" acording to the game or sound test, or if it written somewhere in the booklet of the game/cover ?
Will you accept this kind of tracklist (note that anyone can have is own opinion on those..)

The default course of action is always to follow the officially published information, so if the tracklist is immediately available on any printed material that accompanies the media itself, that'll be the default tracklist (and to verify this we'll need scans). Otherwise, the default tracklist will consist of untitled tracks, and any custom tracklists added to it will need to have their source(s) clearly specified.
