I’ll preface this by saying I’m pretty new to this website and utilizing it as effectively as I can, however when looking through mbdump.tar.bz2 there doesn’t seem to be a file dedicated to a list of artists and their associated ID’s, looking through track_raw there seems to be all the song titles, with some of the artists associated with the songs, however for a large majority the artist is left as blank. The way I’m looking at it makes it seem as though each song has an artist ID number, for example band x would be ID # 123123, which is helpful since all songs from band x seem to be consistently labeled as ID # 123123, however is there a way to associate all these ID #'s with an artist written out in plain text? It would be helpful if there was a script or raw file that could do this/already had it done.
If I didn’t explain this clearly or need to add more detail please let me know and I’ll add in whatever I can, thank you!
Edit: Alternatively, if there is a thread that discusses this, or a database/file that already combines all the musicbrainz songs organized by the associated artist, that would be helpful too.
