    Question Re: Defining 'Compilation' (help?)

    Hi,

    I am ripping the compilation CD 'Stockhausen / Kurtág - Gruppen; Grabstein Für Stephan; Stele':


    So, one work by Stockhausen and two by Kurtag. I went through this thread but I could not see the answer to my predicament. It's quite a basic question actually but I have not, as yet, ripped a 'classical' compilation like this one.

    For ALBUMARTIST, would you use:

    For all tracks - ALBUM ARTIST = Stockhousen; Kurtag

    Or,

    Track 1 - ALBUMARTIST = Kurtag

    Track 2 - ALBUM ARTIST = Stockhousen

    Track 3 - ALBUM ARTIST = Kurtag

    Track 4 - ALBUM ARTIST = Kurtag

    Track 5 - ALBUM ARTIST = Kurtag

    Or, even something different?

    Obviously the 'compilation' box is checked.

    The reason I ask, please, is because - with 'classicals' - sometimes rules can change a bit, if you know what I mean. Every 'classical' CD (esp. opera - 'Tristan & Isolde' took DAYS!) is throwing up new issues and so I wanted to double-check here first before ripping.

    Many thanks,

    Paul

    Re: Defining 'Compilation' (help?)

    Personally, I would keep ALBUM ARTIST consistent across all tracks of an album e.g.:
    ALBUM ARTIST = Various Artists
    OR
    ALBUM ARTIST = David Byrne; Brian Eno
    OR
    ALBUM ARTIST = Karlheinz Stockhausen; György Kurtág

    I foresee issues with player software and different Album Artists.

    agree. That's the point of the ALBUM ARTIST field. Use ARTIST to hold actual artist info, but ALBUM ARTIST should be a single entry for the entire album. And in my own naming string, if I used a differing ALBUM ARTIST entries, the tracks would all be filed under different subfolders (which would be bad organization for me).

    OK, cheers.

    For such scenarios I have used:

    ALBUM ARTIST = Various Artists

    in all my other GENRES.

    But as I say, I have found with 'classicals' that you sometimes end up having to bend the rules slightly here and there.

    Thanks a lot.

    I have noticed a couple of quirks here and there in my other rips (dating back to mid-last-year). I will check over them at some point as I dare say the issue is related to the points being discussed in this recent discussion. It's only with 2 or 3 albums, so not too colossal.

    Hi,

    Just to double-check, while we are on the subject, do you also include an ALBUMARTISTSORT tag such as:

    ALBUMARTISTSORT = Various Artists

    Thanks.

    Yes I do e.g.:
    ALBUM ARTIST = Various Artists
    ALBUM ARTIST SORT = Various Artists

    ALBUM ARTIST = David Byrne; Brian Eno
    ALBUM ARTIST SORT = Byrne, David; Eno, Brian

    ALBUM ARTIST = Karlheinz Stockhausen; György Kurtág
    ALBUM ARTIST SORT = Stockhausen, Karlheinz; Kurtág, György

    ... also, when my album is a compilation, then ALBUM ARTIST is always Various Artists.

    That's great. I will use it on my 'classicals' also now.

    Cheers.
