    I'll need to double check, as I don't have a Qobuz subscription...

    Yes, confirmed. Qobuz should work, too... with a little hiccup: the disc count sometimes is wrong. I'll release an update to fix that.

    What exact revision are you using? With "group discs" enabled I get one
    album for your Moody Blues case, without that option it's two. I tested
    with a bunch more albums like Prince's Sign'o The Times (Super Deluxe
    Edition) 5-disc set.

    My choice under the "Group Discs" menu item is to "Treat multi-disc sets as multiple albums" and LMS is doing that with my local library. It is showing this 2 disc set as two albums. The problem is the album name. The first disc is named properly "This Is The Moody Blues (CD1)". The second disc is not named properly. It should be labelled as "This Is The Moody Blues (CD2)". Instead it is labelled "This Is The Moody Blues (CD2) (Disc 2 of 2)". The appended (Disc 2 of 2) seems to be a carryover from the Tidal version label. The album has been removed from my favorite albums in Tidal and I have checked the tags in mp3tag and there is no reference to (Disc 2 of 2). I am assuming your test was with Tidal versions of this album. In the past the Tidal version of multi disc sets were displayed in LMS as a single album with an appended (Disc 2 of 2) on the album name regardless of the choice made by the user under the "Group Discs" menu selection. If I understand your comment this has been fixed with the latest LMS version so the Tidal versions will now display as two albums??

    I think my particular problem is related to having an earlier Tidal version and then replacing it with a version from my local library. Does this make sense??

    OK - I checked and LMS is handling the Tidal multi disc sets as individual albums so that is great! However, my original problem with the naming of the Moody Blues album persists. It is the only case I have where I have replaced an earlier Tidal version with a version from my local library.

    Ah, you're more concerned about the "disc 1 of 2"? That's a LMS feature,
    and should be the same no matter whether it's an online album or local.
    You won't find that in the tags.

    Can you double check the metadata in those files? LMS' logic behind this
    feature is quite... complex :-). Eg. if "Disc" was part of the title
    already, it wouldn't add the disc number. Or if the disc number was not
    defined for eg. disc 1. etc.

    Ok - problem solved. It is in the tags. In my local library of 550 albums there are 37 multi disc sets. My convention has been to stick with the name on the physical CD so there is a complete cross section of naming ... CD1, CD2, Disc 1, Disc 2, Volume 1, Volume 2 , etc. etc. I use mp3tag for tagging which contains a field identified as "Discnumber". In over 90% of my multi disc sets that label is blank for all discs within the set. In another 9.9% all discs in the set are identified in the "Discnumber" field as 1. Full disclosure - I've never paid much attention to this tag in the past - whatever came from the original rip from Exact Audio Copy has remained. This Moody Blues set was the only case in my library where the "Discnumber" label was 1 for CD1 and 2 for CD2 and was the only case where the (Disc 2 of 2) was appended. I cleared that field for both discs in mp3tag and rescanned and problem solved. What remains mysterious to me is why CD1 did not append (Disc 1 of 2) to its name in LMS with the original tags. Anyway, this issue clearly has nothing to do with OMSI ... it's in the tags.
