I think it is only when you are in Artist View that each actual tagged artist gets their own entry, which I think is appropriate.Also for classical orchestra's containing 50+ musicians?
As I said, I'm currently not sure about an ideal solution, but I do feel there should be an option for some middle ground.
Having only either 'Artist' or 'Album Artist' doesn't cut it.
Well the middle ground is probably to not tag performers like the second chair flute player as an artist.
I mean, when it comes to orchestral music, the orchestra as a group is an artist, the soloist if there is one is an artist, and the people whose names you don't know because they're not artists probably shouldn't be listed as artists.
There could be a Displayed Artist view I guess, but that seems very iTunes level simplistic.
I don't care that much per se, though, so I won't belabor it. I suggested something that would work for what the OP wants to see and I think that covers my interest in this.
@frankz I think you are talking about 2 different views:
Artists and Tracks
in Tracks view, the tracks are not duplicate
But I am talking only of the Artists view, with the panel showing the tracks below
it's there that the duplicate tracks get listed
No, I understand now. I'm telling you the view that will show you what you want to see
, since the view you want to use
can't show you what you want to see.
Artist view won't do what you want, as we've established. You can decide if it's more important to see the data as you wish (each track once) or see the view that you want. As hiccup suggested, if artist view won't do what you want a wishlist post is totally appropriate.
