I’m looking to do some work on Joe Henderson: The Blue Note Years. This is a compilation, some of which were originally released under Henderson’s name, others on albums with Henderson as a sideman. While a couple of the tracks are linked to the original recordings, I’d like to link up the rest. For instance Idle Moments from the compilation should really be merged with Grant Green’s Idle Moments. Almost every track is from a different original release.
Using the Edit buttons on the Recordings tab, I could easily and quickly select the appropriate recordings for each track. However, I believe that doing that might leave a bunch of orphaned recordings.
Using the standard merge recordings functionality would give clean data, but is really tedious to do in a case like this. I don’t believe the MERGE HELPOR script will help me here, since the target recordings are scattered across maybe 20 different releases.
Can anyone suggest any shortcuts to help get this done the right way without losing my sanity?
