I've seen a few instances where a band will have a physical album released, and then later upload the exact same thing to, say, bandcamp. Same name, same cover art, same tracklist...

Should the digital versions of these albums still be added?

Yes, it should be added as an other version of that same album. So long as the digital version is fully available through a band-sanctioned download then it is fine. A digital version made available for download on Bandcamp counts as a valid version. A pirated version ripped and put up on The Pirate Bay does not.

Think of digital versions as being yet another form of distribution (ergo, another format).

Done for the Hazeroth album I linked. And I'll keep it in mind for the future. Thanks
