Topic: How do I bulk-edit the artist field of 100 recordings?
I just created http://musicbrainz.org/release/0930e5f2 … 5386e3869d yesterday by using the Track Parser to parse the information from Amazon's listing (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005WW94ZS). However, looking at the proposed new Classical Style Guidelines I see that the preferred standard is to use the composer as the artist for track purposes (so that music software will show "Tocatta and Fugue by J.S. Bach" rather than "Tocatta and Fugue by (orchestra name) and (conductor name)", among other benefits), and to credit the conductor, orchestra, soloist(s) separately using Advanced Relationships.
So now I have a release with 100 tracks/recordings, all of which I need to edit to change the track/recording artist to be Johann Sebastian Bach instead of its current value. I'd rather avoid making 100 manual edits; is there a way to do a bulk edit on all tracks of a single release? I tried poking about the Release Editor, but didn't spot it if it's there. A little advice would be much appreciated. :-)
