OR operator in label field search not performing as expected

Newbie

The search label:"bbbbbb" returns 15 albums:
https://open.spotify.com/search/label%3A%22bbbbbb%22/albums


They all have a label field of "bbbbbb" except one of them, that has "bbbbbb records" as its label field:

https://open.spotify.com/album/0mzUQPTdU0FlpUkbliSiXA

 

To ensure that my search query only includes albums that have a label of either "bbbbbb" or "bbbbbb records" I executed the following query, expecting to see 15 records:

label:"bbbbbb" OR label:"bbbbbb records"

https://open.spotify.com/search/label%3A%22bbbbbb%22%20OR%20label%3A%22bbbbbb%20records%22/albums

 

However, the only album that is returning is the album with a label field of "bbbbbb records"

 

Am I using the OR operator correctly here? I'm trying to find all albums where the result appears in label:"bbbbbb", appears in label:"bbbbbb records", or both of them.

 

Instead, it would seem like the OR operator is acting like an AND operator here.

 

It may also be worth noting that label:"bbbbbb" OR label:"records" also returns just the same one album that has a label field of "bbbbbb records".
