Floating Anarchy 1977 by Gong was released twice: first in a white paper sleeve on LTM, second with a full-colour sleeve with similar artwork on Charly. The two releases showed the lineup with completely different aliases for most of the performers.

Obviously we need to document that first release, but is it also acceptable to document the second as well? We've done this when there are multiple releases under different band names (e.g. when a mistake has been made and the entity is re-released after correction). Can we do this here as well, so as to make sure all the published aliases of all performers are documented here?

If the band name is the same and there are no additional lineups on the second release then I don't think different aliases are reason enough to enter the same record twice.
