Buick 6 (80s Anglo/Irish band) / Buick 6 (US Band with Lucinda WIlliams)

I recently imported the album “Plays well with others” by the band Buick 6.
The album was automatically recognized and the credits generally seem to be right as far as individual artists are concerned. There seem to be 2 different bands with the name Buick 6, however: One is a band from the late 80s that has nothing to do with this album and the other one is today’s backing band for Lucinda Williams.
Roon links to the 80s band and seems to know nothing about the other one.

Here is the metadata for the “wrong” band:

And here the info for the album:


Hi @Elmar_Heimes,

I have reached out to our metadata provider and requested they make a change here. I’ll keep you updated once we hear from them.

Thanks for the report!

Hi @Elmar_Heimes,

Our metadata provider has let us know that they have corrected this today. Please give this about a week or two to be reflected within Roon. Once you see the change on your end please mark this post as the solution.

Thanks again for your report!

Thanks, @dylan!

The issue is solved (kind of …).
Buick 6 for my album now no longer points to the 80s band - according to the metadata, however, the band consists only of drums and bass. The guitarist (Stuart Mathis) is missing.
Anyway: It is no longer wrong, just incomplete, so I will mark it as solved.
