I’d like to find a way to get Picard to write tags that help do this automatically. It seems that using iTunes the only way to separate, say, Julian Cope’s World Shut Your Mouth album from his World Shut Your Mouth EP is to actually change the album titles. I know there is a plug in that will add single or EP to single and EP titles, but that won’t solve every example in my collection.
The way I’m thinking now is to find a way to add catalog numbers and media (in rare cases where there may be a difference between releases in different media but they share a catalog #) to the titles, i.e.:
World Shut Your Mouth (818 365-1, MERL 37, 12" Vinyl)
World Shut Your Mouth (90560-1, 12" Vinyl)
Would it be possible to write a script to have Picard automatically pull other fields into another? Could I solicit this from someone who is handy with scripting?
Alternatively, and I figure this might be the longer shot, does anyone know a way to get iTunes to use some of MusicBrainz’s tag info to separate releases like this?
