Ok. I will use my example and this will be a detailed description.
I have the album Crash Love by AFI. Now, I own the 2 CD release. The problem is- I’m a completist and they have additional tracks unique to other listings. Example= they have an iTunes only version that has 3 songs that are on nothing else. Now I can find and tag them on the release but not on the release that I have. They also have another release that has an additional 2 songs that aren’t on any other release. SO= Basically, when a group does this I just add them onto the end of their longest track numbered release. In this case, since I have a second CD I simply added the tracks to the end of the original 4 songs. Now, of course, this CD doesn’t exist- and I don’t care if it does- but I want to be able to tag it so it all stays together and doesn’t get split into multiple albums when I load it into a media center.
- Is there a way to do this?
- If this involves editing certain fields or leaving them blank= which ones?
Also, as an aside, since most people who listen to a group as a fan try to get everything by them per a release that throws different songs on different releases= MusicBrainz should be configured to have a “Complete” edition listing. Like in my circumstances with Crash Love- a release that has all b-sides and outtakes, etc., added to the end of the main release. I know for a fact that this applies to a massive amount of albums, e.g. Bush’s main releases Almost ALL have multiple singles with multiple unique tracks. Most people are not going to want to have them listed separately by single but just tacked on to the end of the main pressing.
There’s a lot of other CDs I have that are in the same predicament.
Usually, I add them on but haven’t figured out the best way yet.
