I have been adding a few Christmas albums and I am finding issues. Maybe others are finding the same.
Katherine K. Davis is famous as the pre-War composer of “The Little Drummer Boy”. She is being mixed up with a more contemporary Blues/Jazz singer Katherine Davis.
So for example, Katherine K. Davis on this Temptations Christmas album is linked to Katherine Davis instead.
Thanks for the report here. We are looking into this and will update you once we have more information.
We took a look here, and everything seems to be okay on our end. Can you share screenshots of your file tags here so we can take a look?
Thanks for keeping an eye on this but I can no longer reproduce it. I have just checked and now Katherine K. Davis is linked to Katherine K. Davis as expected and not Katherine Davis as before. Do meta-data corrections eventually filter through like that? Is that possible?
Having said that I am seeing a lot of popular composer duplicates that should be equivalents. I am noticing this with Xmas records as I am tidying them up but it’s everywhere in my pop/rock library. Much more common than with classical. So, in the same album:
In this case Joseph Mohr is coming from metadata but it is a dead link in roon. Josef Mohr is a live link with all the composer metadata. I cannot see where it is coming from, though, as it is not linked to the composition (only Franz Grüber).
Absolutely! This is one of the fundamental aspects of Roon metadata.
