1. When the additional notes say something like "produced by [person] and [band]", should that note be removed when the person is added to the misc lineup of the release, or should it be changed to "co-produced by [band], or should it stay the way it is?

2. Should notes be removed if what they say can be seen in the discography or lineup? Examples: when the additional notes say what singles were released for the album, or that some band member made his comeback to the band on that album / it was the first album without him.

3. Should contact info be in the additional notes, the biography, or neither?

1. I find it clearer and more explicit for the reader when said notes say "Produced by {artist name} and {band name}". Usually best to leave it as is, although there's no right or wrong way to handle this, really.

2. Yes, unless there's a reason why that member's appearance/absence on the album is noteworthy. Example cases might be the member returning after 20+ years in absence, or the last record produced by the release shortly before a member's death, etc.

3. The biography.
