Using "Recording" and/or "Work" data instead of release one

Hello,

Is there a way to make Picard rely on Recording and/or Work data for Artist name and Track name rather than from the release?

For ex:

  • On classical releases it would also to retrieve the full names of tracks directly by creating the links with works rather than editing the release
  • For pop releases it would avoid all the errors/variations due to compilations by retrieving the recording/work name

PS:
Not talking about date since there is other topics for this request

There are some variables you can use in your tagging scripts or filename script.

Thanks

To save time is there also some already available scripts for Picard/Foobar2000 to make use of those extra varaibles?
