      Description

      I was adding a new release to Eric Clapton's album "Eric Clapton", and in the release group dropdown I could see 3 albums all called Eric Clapton and no way to distinguish them.

      In some cases there is a disambiguation field which is visible (for example, there are several Beatles albums called "The Beatles", and "The White Album" is discernible in this way).

      There's a need for always being able to see unambiguously what the release group is.

      Suggestions:
      a) include the first few digits of the release group id
      b) allow pasting of the full release group id or the url of the release group page
