  • Grouping albums with the same name but different "album artist"

    What version of StreetDeck is this bug report for?

    1.0.8.1


    Please give a basic description of the issue here.

    Grouping albums with the same name but different "album artist"


    Is the systemt that is listed in your CarPC specs under your user name the same system where you encountered this bug?

    yes


    If no, please describe your system here.




    Please provide any relevent information regarding the issue you have encountered.

    While sorting music by album artist all albums with the same name are grouped together under the album.

    So for example I have Alice in Chains - Greatest Hits, Red Hot Chili Peppers - Greatest Hits, and The Offspring - Greatest Hits; all three albums songs show up under each individual artist's greatest hits album.

    Other albums affected: Sublime - Gold; Aerosmith - Gold; Megadeth - Rude Awakening; Prong - Rude Awakening

    The album artist for those songs shouldn't be the artists. It should be something like "Various Artists" for example. The track artists would be each actual artists.
    Similar with soundtracks. If the album artist is "Soundtrack" then all soundtrack albums will be together under that album artist.

    I see no way any software can recognize a compilation album any other way. ID3 tags should support a "Compilation" flag. The above strategy is how I have my mp3s tagged and its works great.

      This is based on the new feature to sort music by "album artist". The song are from three separate "album artist's" but each artist has an album with the same name.

      "Album artist" is for the artist for whom the album was released under.

      "Artist" is for the artist who sang, composed, or credited in some way.

            This is now an option under music settings you have to check it for it to use the album artist.

                  Thread closed due to a lack of follow-up from the original poster. 6 days have passed without a response.

                  If the original poster would like to have this thread back opened, he/she may do so by going to the 'Thread Tools' drop down box at the top of the thread. If the Original Poster does so, the Original Poster must post information in response to requests for additional testing. Else, the bug report will be closed again.
