My library is a bit of a mess (since it came from my old, huge, iTunes library, which I didn’t have the time/energy to have beets fully clean up). I’m absolutely loving beets.
When I import a new album, it’s great to have all the correct tags! One annoyance (which I assume is common) is that a lot of my files don’t have “album artist” populated, so I still browse by “artist”, which means that e.g. when there’s an album that’s mostly by “Artist X”, but has various tracks by “Artist X feat. lil’ Y”, things don’t show up as I expect.
So, is there a way to instruct beets to do something like “For everything in the library, if no album artist is defined, use the artist from track 01 to populate it”?
