On metabrains.org tables are shown depicting an artists releases official, live and live + compilation, with no duplicates.
How would I reproduce these categories using the API? It seems like a user friendly way to present albums with the studio albums at the top. If that can’t be done as such how can I sort them client side?
The release-groups I am getting at present bury studio albums amongst the rest and are full of duplicate releases. I don’t know what data to use to sort and categorize them by. I’ve looked for the source code used to create this table but had no luck.
Should I be search by works instead using the API? If so I must be doing that in an inefficient way at present.
