How to list all items (or all albums) in db?

New to beets and just trying to get the hang of the system.

I have imported three albums, apparently successfully (judging from the log), one at a time. I would now like to check the whole content of beet’s database to see the results.
How can I do that?

I thought a simple list with an empty regex would do it:

beet ls -a ":"

However, I only see one album listed, the first one I imported. Is there something I am missing?

Right, so a simple

beet ls

is actually supposed to provide a complete list, shell-like, as demonstrated by another album import.
I am now even more puzzled by the supposedly successful imports that do not show up in the listing.
Sorry for the noise
