I'm taking about the recording entity in NGS. In current Musicbrainz a track is only associated with one album but in NGS, a recording links to all releases it is found on. Work is too high level as all versions , remixes of the same song would link to one work but we want to match on the correct recording.

Perhaps in this particular case it could be recalculated by just discarding the release metadata from the score for the compilation matches only.
 

Another idea - It might be make sense in the Manual Correct popup window to leave the scores as-is, but perhaps instead have a checkbox to hide/display tracks from compilation releases. If "Prefer Original" is enabled, then by default the compilation matches would be hidden, but a user could bring them back by disabling the the "Hide Compilation Releases" checkbox.

What we might be able to do in the next NGS release though is find all the releases that a particular track is on, and sort by date.
 

That sounds like it would be exactly what Alfg is looking for.

Yes, makes sense. I was just thinking that you might have trouble finding a the earliest Recording if the Duration of Alfg's MP3 file doesn't match with that of the earliest Recording. Probably requires some experimentation when NGS comes out.

A question about MB querying - Do you know if it's possible in NGS to do queries like:
"Track='Love Me Tender' AND Duration > 2:43 AND Duration < 2:50"

Yes, that works better, although needs finessing because if the only match is for a compilation I would want to display that, because it would for one it would be better than nothing and of because some tracks are only released on a compilation (usually as an incentive to buy the compilation even if you own the original albums)

You can do already do this in the current system, but you have to convert duration into 1/2 seconds segments (qdurs)

Don't hide a compilation, make the background in another color (maybe yellow)

using Jaikoz 10.0 NGS and as a backup Jaikoz 7.1.1
