Sorry the big old wall of text.
I’m searching by artist/album and also specifying
tracksmedium so I only get results for the number of tracks selected in my tagging application. Taking Aerial by Kate Bush as an example, it has 16 tracks spread over 2 discs and this search term works fine…
Obviously “tracksmedium” is being ignored here because of the OR otherwise I wouldn’t get any results.
I can also search one disc at a time by selecting just 7 tracks (disc 1) or 9 tracks (disc2)
No problems so far.
Now take this next multi-disc album as an example
Artist: Sasha and John Digweed
Album: Northern Exposure
It has 2 discs totalling 22 tracks and if I perform a similar search, I get 0 results.
However, it does exist and is findable using the same search terms if I only select 1 disc and my tracks/tracksmedium is 11.
If your browser has JSON filtering built in, you can see one release has that magic combination of at least one medium with 11 tracks and a total of 22 and that’s the first one - something the original query should find.
This is the actual release
It’s not just one album I’m having this problem with, it’s been a few now.
Explanations on a postcard please?? I’m mightily confused!!
edit: must admit, I hadn’t considered the possibility of omitting these parameters and filtering all results myself. I might try that and see how I get on!
