    Tagging Raise the Roof

    I have a copy of Raise the Roof by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss that does not seem to display Artist Biobraphy or Album information. seems to be true for my copy of Raising Sand also. I have tried tagging Artist as Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Robert Plant / Alison Krauss , Robert Plant | Alison Krauss,Robert Plant & Alison Krauss. It does not seem to matter. has anyone a fix for this. I must be overlooking the obvious

    In Settings -> My Music, what's the current value of the option, "Separator for Multiple Items in Tags"?

    As you can see, I use a double backslash, which is one of the usually recommended options. Another is a semicolon.
    Usually running latest beta LMS nightly on Raspberry Pi OS with virtual players (Squeezelite and Airplay bridge). Occasionally using SB Radio, Boom or Classic.

    On this topic it is well worth having a look at how the LMS database is actually structured and what the scanner does with AlbumArtist, Artist and similar tags e.g. Composer

    In summary, there is only one database table called "contributors" - the scanner will read the tags and insert entries into this table with a numeric type indicator that determines what the entity is in human terms. A contributor can appear more than once if it has multiple types associated with it. I can't recall what the numeric inicators are for each contributor type off hand but they are pretty obvious when you look.

    The multi-tag delimiter referred to above simply tells the scanner to create multiple entries in the database for the tag/type in question if it finds the delimiter.

    When you do More, the first level of info you see is data from the database but if you then do More Info / View Tags then LMS reads the the actual file and shows you the tags


    To look at your database do the following.

    STOP LMS
    Copy library.db locally to your PC
    Use https://sqlitebrowser.org/ (Windows/Mac) to open the local db copy and then interrogate the tables
