For whatever reason, I couldn't turn up your specific example, either. I don't know all the details on the API or why it wouldn't find it (I get results from Discogs for plenty of other albums), but I added it to MusicBrainz for you. A search for just Chalie Boy brings it up for me.
Oh wow, thank you very much!  :)

You're welcome :D  That's something you can do yourself, btw. Anybody can make a MusicBrainz account, and there's a discogs import script you can use if you're willing to fiddle a little with browser extensions.

Sure, is there a step-by-step guide? I had no idea that I could edit the MusicBrainz website

It's not quite step-by-step, but here's a place to start:

https://beta.musicbrainz.org/doc/Introduction_to_Editing
https://community.metabrainz.org

Discogs script: https://github.com/murdos/musicbrainz-userscripts/blob/master/discogs_importer.user.js

Depending on your browser, you'll need something like Tampermonkey or Violentmonkey to install it, but once it's there, there should be a button on each discogs release for importing to MusicBrainz (it also adds links to existing MusicBrainz pages for artists and so on, if they exist and are linked to discogs).

I just tested it out, tried updating my library with my new edit, and everything worked fine

Thanks a lot!
