Hi Robbie -
Tellico is not the culprit for mangling album names. They come that way from
MusicBrainz or CDDB or ... Whoever created the original record has a
different idea than I of how classical music albums should be named and
The key thing for Tellico is being able to FIND the new record once it is
added. If I can find it, I can edit it.
I did not realize that additional columns could be added to the tracks list.
Thanks for the tip!
