Following a tip on another forum I tried searching Tidal within Roon to find an album by a singer called ‘Elizabeth Cotten’. My search returned a few ‘compositions’ but no albums. However, when I searched for ‘Elizabeth Cotten’ in Tidal via Linn’s Kazoo app I found 5 albums in total.
This is a little worrying because I now do almost all of my listening (and searching) using Roon and I don’t like to think I am missing out with some of my searches.
Is there any explanation as to why this might be? Can anyone else find albums by Elizabeth Cotton using Roon?
I am based in the UK, but wouldn’t expect this to be a regional problem.
Well I get one of those but it is listed under Appearances, but I’m US. Maybe it is regional. Access through Linn Kazoo might be through a different region. Try logging in with Tidal’s own app and see what you get.
We have a ticket open with our development team regarding this behavior. I can’t provide any specific timeframes here, but in the meantime, you can add an album from Elizabeth Cotten to your library. Once you’ve done this you will have access to the Performer page and not just the Composer page that you currently have access to.
Thanks very much for this. I now have access to all 4 of her albums from within Roon which is great. However, it’s a pretty serious bug and so it would be good to have a full resolution in the near future.
It is strange though that this appears only to occur relatively rarely. I regularly search for albums by artists of whom I have never heard (and don’t have anything of theirs in my library) following a Roon Radio session and almost all of the time I do get access to the Performer page and albums by that Performer/Artist.
