It would be pretty nice to have a way of filtering a list of releases or recordings for an artist to see only the ones attributed to a certain artist credit (Discogs can do this, for example).

Any opinions on the attached mockup?

To assist voting on artist credit edits, I would really like the ability to do an exact match on the artist credit; particularly with multi-artist credits. This appears to only let you match against the as-credited name of a single artist?

I have a working version of this, but it could really use some UI testing. See for example:

Do you think something like this is enough for the first version? Is there something missing? What you like to change something?

Would it be possible to only show artist credits that apply? e.g. on that link, "Robotman / Moby" gives "No recordings found." so I just wouldn't show it there at all.

It might be just me, but I initially thought "Name" meant the artist name. :/

Hmm...I wouldn't show a cancel button when there's no active filter, since it doesn't seem to do anything other than reload the page in that case, and rename it to "(Clear|Remove) filter" (at first I thought "Cancel" would just close the box...maybe no one else is as dumb as me).

Other than what nikki mentioned, it's great.
