i've improved the search on discogs where no album is entered in the search criteria (which is what you need to do for the billy joel track as discogs doesnt have that album)
I've tested the enhancements and I must admit that I'm really impressed with the results !!! THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!!In a few hours Music Bee Auto-Tagger has improved the results for the track from 0 to 16 albums (taking into consideration Discogs service only).
(Some of the albums are even missing with TagScanner). That's incredible
Steven, you are the best developer I've ever met
Comparing the current results for the track by Billy Joel I can see that MusicBee is able to find even more albums for the track using Discogs service than TagScanner did.
The only significant difference is that TagScanner seems to be more effective in finding the track by Billy Joel on Album Compilations by VARIOUS Artists. Have a look:
Most of the above albums are missing when MusicBee Auto_Tagger is used. MusicBee AutoTagger results are more accurate though.
I was trying to replace Artist tag from 'Billy Joel' to 'Various' but it doesn't really help.UPDATE:
What about an option in the Auto-Tagger search criteria to include Compilations in the search results
That option could refer to Auto-Tag by Track or at least Auto-Tag by Album.
When ticked, Auto-Tagger would search for the selected track in Albums by Various artists as it was shown at above screenshot form TagScanner.
Note that I've checked all the Compilation albums and the track 'Just the way you are' is performed by Billy Joel on every album listed above, so it's technically possible but might be not so easy to implement.
