Default Doujin and original composer credits

Just noticed that on a lot of doujin albums featuring "Fighting of the Spirit" from Tales of Phantasia the wrong composer is credited (Motoi Sakuraba instead Shinji Tamura) so I'm tweaking all affected ones now. I won't bother posting this on each single album thread.

As this might be a problem with some other popular tracks this thread can be used as a catch-all place to mention such issues/fixes.

In such a case, I think it's preferable to always add a note to explain why the printed and the linked credit are different, since otherwise it would confuse users.

This also happens with some Touhou albums, where people assume that all music is by ZUN and forget to credit U2 Akiyama or NKZ.

In that case it also needs to be made clearer what info is actually printed since as is it's very often not clear if the info was taken from the CD or added later due to credits elsewhere. The few cases I was able to check myself thanks to scans being available there seemed to be no composing credits given.
