Indeed; beets will try to match the entire release at once. It should try
doing that, however, and tell you most tracks are missing, rather than just
giving you an error
Ah, it was not clear from the message that beets was trying to match the
whole 56 CDs.
However, pasting the MBID for the whole set does not seem to work either,
even though the output is different.
Here is what happens:
I get the question about CD 1
I paste the MBID for the whole release
beets thinks about it for a few minutes, then spits the complete list of
all tracks from the 56 CD release and asks me if Want to accept it
Surprisingly (because I thought it would have now read the whole 56
CDs), beets now reads CD 2 and asks me again what I want to do because it
cannot find a match .
I enter the MBID of the whole release again (with a a growing suspicion
things will go south again)
beets now complains that the album (CD 2 of 56) is already in the
—is there anything useful in the verbose log?
How do I get one of those? The regular log has a simple line for the whole
operation detailed above:
