Thanks for the reply! I thought about creating them as separate
entries per disc, but I really don't like that approach - I'm
cataloging my music albums, not my individual CDs, so I'd rather
keep them grouped as one entry per album.<br>
I'm similarly importing the data for the most part (easy to generate
a CSV file by listing all the album directories to a file and
tacking on stuff like medium), and use musicbrainz to populate the
tracks and album art.<br>
I like the idea about noting multiple discs and adding comments for
which tracks belong to which discs. Not ideal, but probably the
best way to work around that issue. Very much appreciate the
suggestion - will likely start doing that myself.<br>
I didn't follow your comment about merging discs, though. If you
have to resort to manually creating the disc, which implies you're
manually filling out the track lists for both albums, why do that as
two separate albums and merge rather than just creating as a single
album? I tried doing that myself to see if maybe that was some way
to "trick" tellico into maintaining two tracklists, but it just
merges it into one long tracklist, so I'm not seeing what the
benefit. I'm sure I'm just missing something. No big deal either
way, just curious about your process.<br>

haven't found any way to do what I think you are suggesting, but I
haven't looked. If you wanted to list each disc as a separate
album in Tellico, I can think of at least two options.
1) You could duplicate the entry for however many disc are in the
album. Then change the title of each entry to add the disc
number, and remove the tracks from the other disc(s).
2) Rather than using Musicbrainz, you could use "Import Audio CD
Data..." to import one disc at a time. Then you would have a
separate entry for each disc.
I have a similar problem, but I've chosen a different approach.
If I can find the album using "Internet Search...", I use that and
simply add a comment that tells how many discs are in the set.
But I have a lot of albums that I can't find using "Internet
Search...", so I use "Import Audio CD Data..." most of the time.
I then insert blank rows at the beginning of the track listing for
the second disc (and any subsequent discs), and then merge the
entries. I can then add the comment about the number of discs in
the merged entry. If you wanted to add more information to the
comment, you could include which tracks are on which disc (e.g.
disc 1: tracks 1-12; disc 2: tracks 13-20, or something similar;
that is probably something I should have done but I didn't think
of it earlier). One reason I've taken the approach I have is that
I am also ripping most of my collection as I add them to Tellico
(using K3b) and I rip all discs in a set to the same directory and
then use Kid3 to change the track numbers and file names so that
it will be easier to play the entire album in the correct order.

have a lot of multi-disc albums, which musicbrainz seems to
recognize and split out, but Tellico lists them only as a single
album. Ie., a 2-disc album with 12 and 8 tracks each is just
listed as 20 tracks in Tellico.
I'm guessing this is working as intended because I can see how
Tellico would be limited to a single Tracks table, but still
wanted to confirm before i get to far - is there any way to make
Tellico split out each disc into a separate track list?
