Default Partial Albums

Would albums with only some songs (or even just one) from a video game be considered being put on the site?

I've noticed this album in particular:

http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/daveanderson

It's on iTunes.

Yeah, partial albums do count, and we have plenty of them in the database. You would include the classification "Original Work" to cover the tracks that aren't game related. Occasionally, you find that there are some game tracks that are only available on these kinds of albums.

On the other side of the coin, with the ability to slap a bunch of tracks together and put them up on some music site where you can buy by the album or by the track, we have to be careful with what really constitutes and album and what constitutes a valid release.

I think I know what you're saying. It's got to be legit. Can't have people going around releasing a bunch of orphaned songs calling it an album.

As for this album - I don't think a hard copy is available, so it would be digital release then, right?
