Thanks.

Yessssss…

Please give us file tags for this, as well as for original release date & actual release date. When you’re dealing with >4000 live albums, the editing capabilities are useless.

Hi @John_V,

For recording start and end dates, please see the tags supported below:

RECORDINGDATE
Alternate spelling: PERFORMANCEDATE
Alternate spelling: RECORDING DATE
Alternate spelling: PERFORMANCE DATE

RECORDINGSTARTDATE
Alternate spelling: RECORDING START DATE
Alternate spelling: PERFORMANCE START DATE
Alternate spelling: PERFORMANCESTARTDATE

RECORDINGENDDATE
Alternate spelling: RECORDING END DATE
Alternate spelling PERFORMANCE END DATE
Alternate spelling: PERFORMANCEENDDATE

And to make this complete:

RECORDINGLOCATION

I’m sure you already knew this…

Perhaps it might be an idea to add the list of supported tags to the KB article on File Tag Best Practice?

It would help to put an end to the guessing game that I think that some of us feel that we are engaged in.

So is there quite alot of demand for RECORDINGDATE and RECORDINGLOCATION ?
If so we will probably add to SongKong and Jaikoz. Not clear if this is mainly of interest for live albums or studio tracks as well ?

I use it for classical albums, so that i don’t buy the same performance on yet another re-re-re-re-release with new packaging.

@dylan what tags would we use to define the release date (not the original release date)? date (or TDRC) doesn’t seem to work.
