I prepend the year in the albumsort field so that when looking at a band’s discography on my phone they are ordered chronology instead of alphabetically.
Currently I do this with a simple applescript once imported into iTunes but hoping to remove this step by increasing my use of beets.
Tried using both the set_fields conf setting and the --set parameter but can’t see what I’m doing wrong:
albumsort: ‘$year $album’
I have even tried the below to see an output
and still not seeing the expected results.
Have I misinterpreted the set_fields function?
