This really needs to be updated to say that all mixes made on this date were on the album, this seems to be the case for most mixing sessions on this site, it never clarifies which mix was actually on the album unless you look at the album itself

Hi Jesse, thanks for your message. Indeed, you're right that the session pages can be improved by linking mixes and corresponding releases. The feature is there, and in some cases, it is filled (eg. on this page, see "It Won't Be Long". But it's just a matter of finding the time to fill all the pages :)
