    CLI/web command to search for track from specific album?

    I've been automating my LMS playback using web requests using the Titlesearch command. I often request tracks that exist on many albums (e.g. studio, live, cover versions by different artists...). Is there a way of searching for a specific track on a specific album?

    I don't think you can do this in a single request. You could do a
    "tracks 0 999 search:sledgehammer album_id:999", but you'd first have to
    figure out the album_id.

    If you have 7.9's fulltext search enabled, you could simply search for
    "sledgehammer so". But there's no quantifier to tell the search that
    "so" is supposed to be the album.
