A Credits Checklist?

    On the last two CDs I've done, I was asked to put packaging artwork together. At the end of the process I write up a few credits to add, get the artists' approval on the design, and hit the presses.

    Once it's printed and I think things through a little more I think of a few folks who really should have been on the credits. I hate that!

    Does anyone have a comprehensive checklist for putting credits together. It will be different for every project, of course, but a list that covers just about every conceivable contributor (within reason) would be great even if it means throwing 90% of them out for a project.

    One of the recording engineers we work with keeps a sheet with his session notes and every time someone else is working on the project from studio musician to cover artists to "friends" who stop by he asks them to put down their name, their instrument or contribution to the album and a phone number and or email and then at the end of a session he has a lists of everyone who worked on the project and even a list(s) of "friends" for the thank you portion of the album (it is also a great tool to use for MARKETING - hint hint)
