    Retrieved MusicBrainz data does not match latest from their database

    I'm trying out dbpoweramp for the first time. Trying CD Ripper. I like it so far.

    One thing I noticed is that the metadata displayed in dbpoweramp from MusicBrainz does not reflect the latest displayed on the MusicBrainz website.

    I'm looking at the metadata in dbPoweramp in the "manual meta review" display page. And specifically I noticed the difference with the featured artists listed in the artist field.

    I was wondering if you might know why the data does not match?

    The specific album I am looking at is "Classified - Hitch Hikiní Music". Here is the link to it on MusicBrainz: https://musicbrainz.org/release/8bb2...b-a7478617b75f

    The tracks where metadata is different are:
    12 Cazual Drinking
    dbPoweramp MusicBrainz shows artist: "Classified; Tash"
    MusicBrainz website shows artist: "Classified feat. Tash from Tha Likz"
    The actual CD shows "Tash from Tha Likz"
    freedb: "Tash from Tha Likz"
    Discogs/GD3: Tash

    14 Live It Up
    dbPoweramp MusicBrainz shows artist: "Classified; Mike Boyd"
    MusicBrainz website shows artist: "Classified feat. Mic Boyd"
    The actual CD shows "Mic Boyd"
    freedb/Discogs/GD3 shows "Mic Boyd"

    Thanks!

    There is an option 'Detect multi artists from &, ft & feat

    If you want you can turn this off, however having Classified feat. Mic Boyd is much less useful to a proper player which can detect multiple artists than: Classified; Mike Boyd

    Re: Retrieved MusicBrainz data does not match latest from their database

    Thanks for the reply! I'm a newbie here, so bear with me - my question was more to do with the actual data.

    Music Brainz has "Mic Boyd" as the name in the "Track Artist" field, but the data displayed in dbpoweramp from MusicBrainz is "Mike Boyd". Note the "Mic" vs "Mike", where "Mic" is the correct value.

    2nd example: "Tash" vs "Tash from Tha Likz"

    Here's a screenshot that might help. dbpoweramp.jpg

    Or are you saying that the "Track Artist" field displayed in Music Brainz is not the field that is retrieved/displayed by dbPoweramp for the "Artist" field?

    Seems to be an anomoly within musicbrainz, your link:

    https://musicbrainz.org/release/8bb2...b-a7478617b75f

    dBpoweramp asks for

    GET /ws/2/release/8bb209ee-ea44-49b8-aa6b-a7478617b75f?inc=recordings+discids+artists+labels +artist-credits+isrcs HTTP/1.1
    Host: musicbrainz.org

    which is:

    http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/release/...-credits+isrcs

    which gives:

    <recording id="f7148941-5990-4228-af18-43e5b858e118">
    <title>Live It Up</title>
    <length>240000</length>
    <artist-credit>
    <name-credit joinphrase=" feat. ">
    <artist id="3bd5fb5e-8dd3-4130-be7f-c408a0534f80" type="Person" type-id="b6e035f4-3ce9-331c-97df-83397230b0df">

    <sort-name>Classified</sort-name>
    <disambiguation>canadian hip hop</disambiguation>
    </artist>
    </name-credit>
    <name-credit>
    <name>Mic Boyd</name>
    <artist id="303e75a9-1bb0-4327-8b50-a9f791c69f93" type="Person" type-id="b6e035f4-3ce9-331c-97df-83397230b0df">
    <name>Mike Boyd</name>
    <sort-name>Boyd, Mike</sort-name>
    </artist>
    </name-credit>
    </artist-credit>
    </recording>

    as you can see there is mic boyd and Mike boyd, we take the 2nd value with the sort value.
