I just received the latest Dave's Picks Grateful Dead CD set. There are no disc id's for the cds in this set. but the release, with the correct tracks ARE on musicbrain. MDID=8eeda1b8-f99e-4b1c-8895-e11224f81304 (URL=https://musicbrainz.org/release/8eeda1b8-f9... I can't for the life of me figure out how to attach the
diskID to each CD so that the cdripper can find it on musicbrainz. When I search for this release after trying to attach I disk ID in picard, I get the message "None of the mediums on this release can have the given CD TOC attached, because they have the wrong number of tracks." True, in that there are 4 CDs in this set, and the MBID record
show that. How can I select each CD to attach the disc ID to?
you're asking in a fine place, but I don't know the answer
that said, I don't get what you're saying
"none of the mediums ... [has the right number of tracks]" seems pretty unambiguous?
how many tracks are in the CD TOC that you're trying to attach?
what's with the ">" characters in track names?
So, there are 4 CDs. I have the first in the CD drive. It has the same tracklist as is listed for CD1 on MB. I don't want to attach the CD to the entire release. I want to attach the CDid to the first CD in the list. And then do the same for the other 3CDs so my CD ripper, can find the metadata. But I can't figure out how to attache the
CDid to each CD in the release.
Oh, the ">" refers to the fact that the tracks are continuous. For example, on this release CD2 starts with Bertha... and goes into a Jam, that ends with the begining of the second Track "Good Loving" the band didn't stop playing, but each song is a separate track on the CD. So, if one's play does not pause between tracks, you actually hear
what the audience heard.
The band was know of playing songs, and jamming to the next song... especially in second sets.
">" is a standard indication of that in the GD song lists.
labaxter, what tool (what software, program) are you using to try to attach the disc ID to the medium in MusicBrainz?
picard, which sends me to an MB webpage... they is where the message comes from.
Thanks for the reference to the vote. I voted. Now I'll wait a week and see what happens.
MB is awesome, and your support is awesome. Thank you.
You're doing good work, labaxter!
You're doing good work, crism!
Back from a wedding, settle in, edit some MB… man it really is a comfort zone isn’t it :P
18:43 < labaxter> Damn... that tracklist is actually missing two tracks! (bertha and Good Lovin)
(nice, I figured that message was very specific, heh..)
the existing release looks kinda broken in general, heh, yeah.
Check out ‘open edits’ on that release for some real good spaghetti!

I'd figure that since it's been recently released someone had added it *before* it had released, and now it's a mess (remember kids, it's not cool to add pre-releases just *because* you wanna yell "first" :P)
there are several editors who add all of taylor swift's pre-announced titles which then turn out to be wrong and it takes them a week to fix it anyway
