so, i’ve read the post reported by @BrianW, and the answer by @John_V.
but as far as i understand, these are not an answer.
notice the double Alice performer. the second one comes from tags, and the link take to:
the other comes (i guess) from roon, and the link takes to artist page:
under a search (magn. lens) i get:
so, first “Alice” is both a top result (artist), and a composer. the second Alice should be “just” a perfomer.
but they are the same person… and i want to merge them.
on this screen it is impossible to select both them, for merging. so, what can i do?
on the other hand, if i select one of the two tracks with the double Alice, and I edit credits, I get this:
so, as you see, apparently there are actually 3 Alice’s… and they are all Primary Artists (not reported as perfomer). Don’t ask me why.
I can (and I did) add another credit for the second Alice (as suggested by @BrianW). but that makes no difference. as the search produces exactly the same result.
This is specific to this album, which turns out to be quite peculiar.
In other cases the suggestion by @BrianW works… and it’s a workaround i’ve already done. But this is clearly quite cumbersome and unsatisfying.
So my question is actually if there is a more straightforward method for merging in situations like this, better than the “workaround” suggested by @BrianW.
This problem is very common in my library, and i suppose in all libraries, and it sounds strange to me that it has not been addressed (@BrianW linked post is only 20 days old!). I’d like to know that there is a ticket for this.
