Description abcde 2016-05-23 17:38:58 BST
version 2.7.2-1 on debian testing

A CD with a stub only (i.e. not a full MusicBrainz record) will throw an error. I don't know if enough information is returned from MusicBrainz for a stub to continue on or if abcde would have to give up anyway, but the exception is confusing, especially the first time. This is the session for "Captain & Tennille" "Love Will Keep Us Together". By the time you get to this I will probably have created a full record for this, so I can't provide you with a reproduction.

Thanks for the report. I've already added guarding in this area for CD releases without year data. I'll add more to look if events even exist too!
