Query about having several versions of albums with same name

Query about having several versions of albums with same name
Hi,

I'm having a user error issue with albums from the same band.
For example, Hawkwind - Levitation, I have two copies of this on my NAS but when I select it from my Naim app, it only lists one entry for the album, I click on that album then it lists 2xtrack one, 2xtrack two etc.

How do I set it up to treat each individual album, individually?

Here's some of my Minimwatch settings -

Index Tags - Artist, Date, Genre, All Artists,

tagOptions - Album.sortTags={Album, Artist}

In Advanced

tagCustom - AlbumArtist.displayRole={artist},

Thanks in advance.

You could, of course, simply suffix the album name tag to differentiate the two albums.
For more ideas, take a look at the Multi disc section of the user guide.

This album has multiple discs, so by default it will be merged with other albums that have the same name and artist(s). To prevent this merging without changing the album name, you can use a match filter as described in this section.

Aha! That's fixed it. Thanks.
