I created a custom tag called "Album Type".
It can hold these values:

1. LP
2. EP
3. Live
4. Compilation
5. Single


Then I made my albums to be grouped by this custom tag.
But the problem is, that the grouping headers itself can be sorted only alphabetically either ascending or descending, but I would like to have this order, because is most logic... At least LPs have to be first, that's for sure...
Only option I have is to add those numbers in front, to make those labels be grouped by the order I want, but that would make it much more ugly...

Thank you very much !!!! Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

And even "AZ Jump Bar" could be modified for this custom tag, which I believe is very useful...
It would be nice if you could filter by this Album Type tag (instead of letters or decades):

1. All

2. LP
3. EP
4. Live
5. Compilation
6. Single

I'm also interested in this. I had the exact same idea, Petrž (although I named it 'Release Type').

I'd love to be able to do that.

Maybe there's a way using RegEx and Virtual Tags, but it's out of my reach so far.
