Multiple CDs within one Album

Question Multiple CDs within one Album
I have some albums that have more than one CD. Currently, the folder structure is as follows:

King Crimson - Red
King Crimson - Red/CD01
King Crimson - Red/CD02
King Crimson - Red/CD03

I use the discnumber tag to indicate the number of the CD. So far, all works well. Now, there are some albums which have different title for the various CDs. For example:

King Crimson - Islands
King Crimson - Islands/CD01 - Studio Album
King Crimson - Islands/CD02 - Live In the UK
King Crimson - Islands/CD03 - Live In the US

My questions is how do I tag the albums which have different names? What is the best recommended way to do so?

Thanks!

Looks like you are almost there.

As an alternative to adding a DISCSUBTITLE tag, the disc identifier suffix in the album title can be specified as [disc <n>: <subtitle>] or (disc <n>: <subtitle>) or , disc <n>: <subtitle>.

Thanks but I am more confuse than before. The web site just terrible. Can you please provide an example how to do this? What do I need to add to the MinimServer configuration? What tags do I need to add to the files? I was looking at this form the site but it does not help:

In some cases, an album disc may have a meaningful subtitle as well as a disc number. If you tag the tracks from this disc with the disc subtitle by using the DISCSUBTITLE tag, the album contents will be displayed as separate discs and the selectable heading for this disc will be displayed with the subtitle name instead of the disc number. For example, you might tag the tracks from the first disc of the album Ummagumma with the DISCSUBTITLE tag value 'Live' and the tracks from the second disc with the DISCSUBTITLE tag value 'Studio'. If you do this, the selectable disc headings for this album will be displayed as '>> Live' and '>> Studio' instead of '>> Disc 1' and '>> Disc 2'.

RE: Multiple CDs within one Album
Ok, you can change the Album tag of each track in an album as follows:

For the King Crimson - Islands/CD01 - Studio Album
Set Album tag value to “Islands, disc 1: Studio Album”

For the King Crimson - Islands/CD02 - Live In the UK
Set the Album tag value to “Islands, disc 2: Live In the UK”

Etc.

Nb - omit the quotes from the tag value

RE: Multiple CDs within one Album
The correct tag to use for albums like Islands is DISCSUBTITLE (in addition to DISCNUMBER).

RE: Multiple CDs within one Album
Do I need to add DISCSUBTITLE to the minimserver configuration as well?

No, it is purely a tag change.
