Anybody knows the most trustworthy/accurate place to uncover which musicians played on which Bowie recordings?

There seems to be quite a few discrepancies between the info found in Chris O' Learys books and https://www.bowiebible.com/ - just as an example.

Where do one find the most historically correct info?

I'd love a wikipedia style timeline somewhere here.

Discogs get so much wrong it's not funny.
Sure it is possible to correct them, and they will eventually update their info but from experience I am still trying to get proper credit for work I have done that is simply not either properly acknowledged or (on some releases) not even listed.

That said it can be a starting point, but Liner Notes are usually the best way to go.

People online still quote Wikipedia.
Me, Myself & 'I' have edited things on it.....
Discogs is 'an online shopping mall' = One of their underlings told me that in an email.
They also have told me on several occasions that I was right and The Seller was an effing comedian.
In nicer words though.
Scans of stuff....is all I meant.
The 'Japan for US' CD version of 'After All' RCA....IS the best sounding version I have disco-vered.
The Ryko's try to imitate it.

No Way - the version on the reel is by far & away better.
None of the RCA CD came from the original tapes, but from Umatic Red Book Digital backups.
Do I have your email address??
If not can you PM me?
