I used to have a list of all albums / singles / EPs that I had occasion to listen too. If liked any piece of music from them, then I would add something from them to my set of audio files. And so I had information about being acquainted with a given release both in a simple TXT file and in the audio files themselves [and by extension also in Mp3tag]. But keeping track of all of that in aforementioned TXT file was consuming my time; and I also started to spot differences [errors]. So I kind of stopped updating it, keeping order in files only; because they matter the most
But the problem was and still is this: when I am doing like a discography of one of the favorite artists, I might completely disregard existence of a given release. In that I simply do not find anything interesting for me on it [a very common thing with singles]. And as it is a favorite artist and some schmuck of YouTube fame, I would like after all to know to the day I die, what already have I listened to that was released by such artist liked by me. So in the past I used to write down in the TXT file such not-liked albums annotations- but now I know for good that I will not use that system anymore: because that is what Mp3tag I want to use for, as I use it practically every day
And so: How to keep "in Mp3tag" such information; that is not suppose to be there? Create a 1 second files with silence and tag them? But only with ALBUM, YEAR and ARTIST / ALBUMARTIST data? What about FILENAME / TITLE then? There could be multiple files [notes with info] like that in one folder [representing a given ARTIST], so they would have to be somehow unique. So to counter any issues arising from that: put the ALBUM in TITLE? And store all of such notes in a special folder and in a format that I do not use; so that they would stand out from normal / legit files?
Any ideas / comments? I practically have described here a ready to use system- but maybe someone already does something like this I can share some thoughts, that come from empiricism? Some do's and don'ts?
