I’m working on this release.
What’s different about it versus the existing Copland/SLSO release is it came packaged with a sampler disc that had been used by itself as well. The sampler was missing entirely from MB. Over at Discogs, the notation said the sampler had come with Copland/SLSO, but did not note that it had come stand-alone as well.
I created a separate release for the sampler. But!!! I didn’t supply a Disc ID because I’m not absolutely positive it would be the same as the version I have.
This I could use some advice on. I don’t have any reason to think the Disc IDs would be different, but I don’t KNOW them to be the same. What’s wanted in MB?
I re-ripped my two discs to see how the tags would come out. I didn’t get what I expected or what I really wanted
This might be a ripper question – I’m using ARM (Automatic Ripping Machine). But at first here I want to know whether I got MB right.
The Copland/SLSO/Slatkin disc came out with the correct album artist.
The trouble, from my point of view, is the name of “album” – it came out Symphony no. 3
I’d have preferred “Symphony no. 3 + Music for a Great City” – that would be a reasonable name for the program. But I don’t see a straightforward way to get that in the tags.
The Bonus Sampler is what’s really got me confused. It has Copland/SLSO/Slatkin for the Album Artist (which is wrong) but it has a reasonable name for the disc “Symphony no. 3 - Music for a Great City”. The problem is THIS is wrong.
What I personally would want is;
Copland, SLSO, Slatkin Symphony no. 3 - Music for a Great City 01 - Title 02 - Title ... SLSO, Slatkin Conductor's Choice 01 - Title 02 - Title ...
But the release in MB as it stands looks like it has one Album Artist, and two discs, so I can perfectly well imagine having the disc number in front of the track number, and understand why it did what the ARM did what it did.
I might want to make it do something else though. But getting it correct will depend on what’s the correct and proper thing to do in MB.
Classical Editors – any hints for me? What should I read?
