No, I don’t believe that’s true.
If I take single popular songs from an original album that I have, and then after removing all tags and then scanning it separately, Picard will usually say the song came from ‘The world’s greatest…’ , ‘Die besten 100…’, Hits from the 80’s’, etc. etc.
But it will not mention the actual original album it came from.
You misunderstand. It’s not about me not caring for detail.
Probably the contrary.
It’s about getting incorrect information from Picard.
But as I said, it’s now clear to me how this works, and it’s not a big bother.
When scanning a folder with separate tracks, I’ll just need to remember to disable Picard from writing all album related information.
