Hi,

When browsing by album name, it would be useful if the artist was mentioned
too ie 'Automatic For The People by REM', currently it just displays the
album name which is fine if you can remember who that album was by but not
so good if you cant...

Small thing I appreciate but it would make it easier to figure what is what
when casually browsing.

Thanks
Andy

This is alrady filed as a feature request, but I can't recall the exact bug
number. there are a number of 'more info here' type requests that can't be
dealt with presently. the server sorting and data handling are currently
hard-coded and some infomation just isn't available in certain modes. there is
currently a side-effort to bring in an SQL backend to handle the data. when
that is ready, all this information will be available and will just need an
interface under which to show it.
