Topic: Earliest Recording Date help
I'm using Picard to help tag music at a local radio station, but the earliest recording date is needed in the %date% field.
I am using the Last FM + plugin for Genre tagging and the Original Release Date plugin by Philipp Wolfer to try and grab the
earliest release date. Picard doesn't seem to do the last on its own.
I'm using $set(date,%originaldate%) to set date as the found one from the Original Release Date plugin, and it seems to work.
The problem is, a lot of remastered tracks have different audio fingerprints, and Picard doesn't seem to put the earliest /recorded/
date in, which is what I need it do to. i.e. The Beatles have a track remastered in 2000, but it's recorded in 1960-something.
Is there any way to use a plugin or tagger script of some kind to grab this data, or does it completely rely on relationships to work?
I'm not sure the Original Release Date script goes through the relationships or search for the track and artist to /find/ this info.
Any help with this would be EXTREMELY appreciated!! :)
