Description Reuben Thomas 2015-07-29 07:45:53 BST
A common format for classical albums' DTITLE field is:

DTITLE=Orchestra / Conductor / Album name

(the first two are sometimes reversed, or there might be others, e.g. for a concerto, the name of the soloist might be included).

cddb-tool currently takes the second field as the album name; I propose that it should instead take the last, unless the maintainers are aware of common cases in which that would fail, in which case it seems some configuration is needed. (Uncommon cases are I imagine better dealt with by user editing of individual entries.)
