experienced mb folk: what are your thoughts on an "All-State Choir" type artist -- that is... I have some discs from the Arizona High School All-State Choir festival; the albumartist on that is hard to decide
(the choir performing is a per-year audition-in ensemble from across the state)
Ok, I understand that. Sorry, what I meant is that Philip Glass probably didn't have any "intent" naming the tracks on this particular CD. He named the songs, which both options agree with exactly, but the question is the "metadata" in the track names.
Really don't think this chap was born / died on the same dates as Johann Sebastian Bach
what does it mean when picard tags by folksonomy ?
I've looked up folksonomy and folksonomy tagging but I'm not sure how picard would use it for genres
People on MusicBrainz tend to use genres as tags for releases.
should I enable folsonomy tagging for genres ?

is there a way to have picard play a music file so that I can verify that it is the correct song ?
oh, hi nikki.
does "a karaoke version" seem that wrong to you?
hmm? It's not wrong, it just doesn't work if there's more than one karaoke version
"Awesome Song has a karaoke version Awesome Song (karaoke) and Awesome Song -instrumental-"
tis a bit weird.
it works for me, but maybe I've just spent too much time reading totally bizarrely phrased relationships ;)
not that I expect that'll happen much, but still.
second, as far as I know, picard doesn't have any music playing abilities, sorry.
yeah, it would be nice if the relationship phases supported being translated and having alternate plural versions.
What would be better still is to remove the need for phrases entirely and just list off credits.
The credit itself can easily be translated.
I was wondering 'cause I think I'd prefer to keep the current wording, it's not ideal for more than one, but I think it sounds better when there is only one (which will presumably be the majority of cases)
navap, the NGS test server does that for a lot of the track->artist relations on the release page, iirc?
nikki hates the sentences... easily translated... hah! :P
nikki, yeah, feel free to leave it as is. I don't expect multiple karaoke versions to be an issue, and it does sound better for one.
ok then :)
nikki goes to send an rfv

anyone in here who can help me converting a release group to a box set? :)
I think I mistakenly added a release group while in fact it should have been a box set
...and now that I've read the definition of a release group, I *know* I did it wrong
hmmm... everybody's celebrating their weekend, I suppose :)
nikki isn't sure what exactly you're trying to do
do you need to combine multiple release groups into one?
no... I have a box set here
and I added it as a release group
it's a set of disks which are also individually available, or previously released?

well... it's a re-release, packed onto 16 CD's which were also released on many more CD's separately in the past
huh. that's an odd case.
so the individual cd's of this release are actually not individually available
and each cd would contain songs from more than one previously released album?
hmm. In this case, it's probably fine to leave them all together as a release group, there's not much point in having them seperate
