Hi, I’m am just getting started and am having trouble with the initial import. When I import an existing directory of files, beets puts everything under a flat directory structure that looks like:
Compilations/Back In Black/
All tracks appear under this single directory, even though I have for the most part standard albums, not compilations. As far as I can tell, “Back In Black” may have gotten used as the sole album title because it comes from one of the first artists, AC/DC.
beet info, most of my existing tracks do have compete tags, with albumartist, artist, album, track info, etc. And beets does seem to be aware of this information, based on the output I get from
beet ls after importing.
Maybe I’m missing some additional configuration that I need prior to importing? I’m not sure if it matters, but my source tracks are initially contained in a flat directory structure prior to importing.
Any help is appreciated.
