    I prefer to keep the Simple Library View plugin despite the rescans on startup (which as I say don't bother me too much).

    You add a simple named file with no extension to your album folders, one file for every library you wish an album to appear in, once scanned you can use it a bit like "Library Views".

    I don't use it myself because of the scanning on server startup, 5 years ago this was a problem for me, probably wouldn't be these days with SSD drives etc..

    So you add that file to every album folder that you want to appear in the library view. Sounds like a lot of work to me.

    I use Simple Library Views so my partner can easily see her preferred tastes in the whole library, which is otherwise somewhat dominated by my taste (which in my view is excellent, though this is disputed by most people ).
    It's pretty easy to navigate through the library pasting the file into the required folders and it didn't take too long.

    That is probably the best use for it
