Perhaps you could help me (& the rest of the world) out here?

I'd like to grab the year tag (from resource like Discogs.com or MusicBrains for ex.) for those tracks that dont have a year-tag (or the wrong one).
I've used SongKong Pro, but the results are from when the Album is compiled/released.
I mean, I have some that says: 2017 year-tag wise
But those tunes are just put on a CD that came out in 2017, though, those are classics from the 90's.
Feel my pain?

There is this (extended?) fieldtag called %ORIGINAL YEAR% that supposed to show when it was released.
According to this topic: https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=171592&pid=1868269#pid1868269
It is possible grabbing that info using MusicBrainz Picard.

But the topic also shows, not all tracks have this info.
Then it should grab the oldest %RELEASEDATE% from the db-results.

I?ve tried MusicBrainz Picard & MP3tag using this Discogs-script: https://community.mp3tag.de/t/ws-discogs-pone-mod/9226
But all fail, since it will pop up a list of records, which u then manually have to select.

I would just love to see it autopilot batch style.
1) Drop collection into app
2) Let it search on Artist + Title in Discogs.com or/and MusicBrainz db
3) Grab the %ORIGINAL YEAR% -> if not excist: grab oldest %RELEASEDATE%
4) Save it in the common YEARtag of the ID3-tag

Since SongKong already does a similar job, and has access to those databases, could you implement such function?

I believe anyone whose into music, would like to sort their collection on YEAR aswell.
Not when it was digital released on iTunes for ex. or when it was Remastered or when the Compilation was made.
For ex. When creating a playlist, to catch that ?Zeitgeist?

By default SongKong does try to store this value in the Original Release Year
which maps to different audio tagging formats as follows:

ID3v23:TORY
ID3V24:TDOR
Mp4:----:com.apple.iTunes:ORIGINAL YEAR
Vorbis/Flac:ORIGINAL_YEAR
Wma:WM/OriginalReleaseTime

So have you checked this field, you can make use of SongKongs spreadsheet that is created after a Fix Songs task is run to quickly scan this.

But also you can use this value in the Year field as well instead of the release year by simply enabling the Format:Use Original Release Date


So Im not sure if you have missed this, or if you are aware but SongKong is not finding the right info for you. If the latter then please run Help:Create Support Files

Sounds good!
Where exactly do I enable this?
