I have some albums tagged using the Discogs plugin (and other imported as-is, etc.)
I would like to have set the Musicbrainz id for every individual track in my library, no matter how I tagged the album.
I think I can get this done by making a second fake import (without copy or move) for all my library as singletons, but then I think I will have all my tracks twice in my beets database, one as part of the album and one as singleton .
So, to get the musicbrainz ids for tracks, I shoul do beet import -L -s? Because a reimport, like beet import -L won’t make a difference, say the DiscoGS tagged albums (tagged by DiscoGS because Musicbrainz doesn’t recognize them) will stay the same. Am I wrong?
beet import -L -s -M -C -w will do the trick?
Ah, that’s interesting! I would be careful with using -s because beets will probably want to make your songs into “singletons,” i.e., to disassociate them from their album structures. So I’m not sure I have a perfect idea for how to do this on a per-track basis in a non-disruptive way…
