How to find missing albums/eps by release type?


#1

The closest thing is beet missing -a, but I also want to exclude compilations/live/etc from output. I’ve tried queries like beet missing -a albumtype:ep, but it still returns whole release list from musicbrainz. Any thoughts?


#2

Hmm, interesting point—the query argument to missing filters the albums before looking for missing albums among them, not after fetching the missing albums. I don’t think we have a way to do the latter, but it seems like a good idea. Would you mind filing a feature request on GitHub (unless there’s one already there)?

It seems there is one already: https://github.com/beetbox/beets/issues/2661
