Date vs. Original Release Date - Horus107 - 2016-11-06

Hello,

Musicbrainz uses two dates for a release. The actual relese date of this particular product and the original release date, when the recording was first released.

http://musicbrainz.org/doc/Release/Date
https://picard.musicbrainz.org/docs/tags

The original release date is the date you usally want to see in your media player (imho), because it defines where the record stands in the artists discography and the spirit in which decade it was produced, ...

Is there a way to configure Kodi to use the original releae date as year for sorting, display, ... if the tag exists?

Thanks!

No, not at the moment.

This date / year thing has come up a few times recently, I guess I had better up the priority on my list of tasks for v18 Smile

Hey, great to hear Kodi people are aware of that issue.

In the meanwhile, I use the original date as date, as proposed in this thread: https://community.metabrainz.org/t/date-vs-original-release-date/168992/2
