    Is it TXXX BAND or...? What app is writing it?
    I think it is, Iĺm using mp3tag. I think the band tag is not standard in mp3tag, so I created one.

There are other tag fields that LMS supports having multiple - separate values in the same tag, example is you can have multiple genres in the TCON tag.
    I have some albums with multiple album artists. I have used mp3tag to create the tags. In LMS you get exactly the thing I would like to see. That is, it shows multiple album artists and the album is shown under both album artists individually. In iPeng only one album artist is shown. iPeng does show multiple track artists.

    So are we saying that my bug here has already been implemented?

    It would be an idea to add a toggle that would direct LMS to use the same value for both Album Artist and Band in its DB, unless a differing explicit Band tag was present.

    I was not saying that a separate BAND tag had been implemented in the LMS database, I was saying that you can put multiple items in TPE2 by separating them with a semi colon ";". You would then see separate entries for each one in the "Album Artist" view with the LMS setting of "Treat TPE2 MP3 tag as Album Artist". There is only one TPE2 tag and depending on your setting in LMS it will either be treated as "Album Artist" or "Band". I use DBPoweramp with LAME encoder to rip to MP3's. I believe that DBPoweramp treats TPE2 as "Album Artist".

    I actually wasn't responding to u, but rather the other poster, who seems to be suggesting it has been implemented.
