you could use a script like this in Options > Scripting:


If you activate this script it will run automatically on all files you match to a MusicBrainz release on the right. Or you can run it manually on selected files via right click menu “Run script…”.

One note about the $get: Usually you can access the values of a tag by the proper variable name. So e.g. if your tag is called “rerecorded” you can use %rerecorded%. But the hyphen is not a valid character for a script variable, so %re-recorded% gives a syntax error. In cases like this you need to use $get(re-recorded).
