Questions / Re: Baffled Newbie - How do I make this thing

In the end, I found Music Explorer, by trial and error. IMNSHO, It should be more obvious or at least at the top of source options.

Questions / Album Artist - sort by date?
« on: December 02, 2021, 02:33:08 PM »
Is there a way to sort the albums by date in the album artist list? That is, Same artist, several albums, date in each album's date tag, sorted that tag.

"Music to speakers" was a metaphor (yes, I checked to be sure MusicBee is in the context). I've got a large album collection Here, and I want some part of it coming out of speakers There. For example, somehow I managed to get to an album of 208 tracks (lots of ripping to get there). There's only so much Lexington Lab Band a body can take. Find my Pink Floyd or Brandenburg Concert album(s)? I wish.

I'm talking about the basic operations. If there's a "only the basics" how-to somewhere, point me at it.

I know this a recurring theme but here it comes again: Is there a simple way to get MusicBee running? At this point, I poke at buttons and lists. Sometimes something useful happens, more often, nothing or something of no use happens. The Intro FAQ is great for showing various panels, but does nothing for "all I want to do is go from .mp3 to speakers". At this point I can't even find my music collection. Where's a meaningful how-to about at least getting the collection visible and simple operations.

Questions / Sort artist listing by date, or by folder name
« on: March 08, 2021, 03:46:04 PM »
I have a number of Alan Parsons albums and individual files (often collected from video). If I display artist Alan Parsons, there's a mix of files and albums. Picking my way through to at least build a playlist is challenging. Seeing the list sorted by date would be a big help here. Even better would be seeing the folder structure under Artist Alan Parsons.

In a perfect world, seeing, date sorted or with file structure, anything with the name Alan Parsons because, in this instance, there's also Alan Parsons Project. Or Al Kooper shows up on more than the concerts and Supersessions with Michael Bloomfield. Anything with Al Kooper in it would give one result, anything with Michael Bloomfield will give another result.

Is any of the above possible now, or is this something for the wishlist?

Questions / Artwork Internet search fails

Trying to update or add some artwork. Internet searches fail with with unable to locate "by 'Johnny Cash'". In a few cases, though, searches do work. What's happening and how do I fix it?
