Topic: Newbie seeking advice
I've just added my first release http://musicbrainz.org/release-group/1c … 382aff61b6. It's been a bit of a rough road dealing with the interface but I got it in the end.
Could i ask someone to check it out and give me some feedback?
Also, I've got a couple of questions. The release in question is a 12 inch LP with recordings on both sides. I submitted it just like a 2 CD album and now it shows it as 2×12" Vinyl under Format. Tried searching the forum for vinyl but couldn't find any consensus for dealing with record sides, so what would be the correct way to tag them? If I mark it as a single vinyl the track info is lost.
Another question, what is the best way to input multiple artists per tracks? If I try to parse them, it shows them all as a single artist regardless of the separators between them (,;/), so I have to do them one by one for each track. Also, the default join phrase seems to be either & or , which then stays the same in the Artist field of ID3 2.3 tag when I try tagging with Picard. I've noticed in the guidelines for ID3 tag version 2.3.0 (http://www.id3.org/id3v2.3.0) that multiple artists in the TPE1 frame are supposed to be separated with a /. Now, I have some kind of dbpoweramp plugin that shows tag info in Windows Explorer and when the artists are separated with slashes in the id3 tag it shows them with a semicolon after each one, whereas if they use commas it shows them with commas, which leads me to believe that slashes are recognizable artist separators just like the id3 guidelines say. Any thoughts?
