Roon mangling a compilation CD sampler

@joel

How does this metadata:
Track:

All tracks:

Translate to this in Roon:

note performed by as well as album and artists — this should be treated as a compilation album, not so?

Do you need a Various Artists tag in Album Artist?

None of my compilations have an albumartist entry and they’re all treated appropriately.

Judging from this reply, perhaps an explicit albumartist entry of “Various Artists” might help?

I hear you, but I’ve got over 1000 other compilation albums and not one is tagged any differently to what you see above, yet they’re all treated correctly by Roon, whether identified or not. I’ve removed this album, cleaned up library and then reintroduced it in the hope that Roon would correct its previous classification, but it hasn’t.

I’d like to understand what’s leading to this behaviour rather than implementing a workaround that hasn’t been needed on any other compilation album I’ve imported.

Hi @evand,

Can you share this album with us?

Ideally, you can zip up the entire folder and send me private message containing a shared dropbox link. If you don’t have Dropbox or need another way to send the media, just let me know.
