This question is not about entering metadata, but finding metadata for digital releases.
Until last night I had only bought CD’s, I never downloaded music. Last night I bought 7 albums and a single song on Bandcamp, I brought them down as wav, flac, and mp3 to see how they would be tagged and what was included in the packages.
I love the music but was disappointed in the packaging contents and tagging. I was not expecting a booklet (would have been nice), but thought they would have been tagged better, just basic tags and sometimes ISRC’s. I searched Bandcamp for more information but little was to be had. I understand it is up to the band/artist to supply so its not Bandcamps fault, they are delivering what the artist gives them.
The questions I have for the Bandcamp buyers are:
Is this what I should expect, just songs and front cover art but most likely nothing else?
Is there a way to know just what is in the package before you buy?
Am I not looking in the correct place on Bandcamp for information?
What do Bandcamp buyers do to find information?
I am happy with what I bought but for now see more value in the package with the booklet that “may” contain information. I know some band camp offers have the physical package available but for what I bought that was only two. I will say Bandcamp is addictive in that you can listen to music for a long time that gets you searching for other music. I went there to buy 2 OOP albums and bought more.
