 Since the basic lookup dialog doesn't (yet) have a way to add a complex
query that includes separate fields like year or artist, your approach of
creating a basic entry and then updating does actually execute a better
search. Discogs can use artist, release, and year while Musicbrainz can use
artist and release. Both of them also can lookup via barcode if you have a
field with that information.
