SmartList Creation Question
« on: March 27, 2024, 03:08:21 pm »

I am trying to create a smartlist that mimics an upcoming box settle by Simon Rattle.  I have almost all the individual albums on the box set, but I want to create a smartlist that will recreate this box.  I plan to use this as a template to mimic other box sets that I don't have, even though I have the individual albums.  For the Simon Rattle Complete Warner Berlin Box Set, it would need to incorporate the following:

Album Artist: Simon Rattle

Artist: Berlin Philharmonic or Berlin Philharmoniker or Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra

Label: Warner Classics or EMI Classics.

Any advise on how to accomplish this?

Thanks,

Bruce

Why not create a normal playlist and just drag&drop the files/albums you want?

For a Smartlist, just add those items as rules, selecting all the values you want:
Album Artist      is        Simon Rattle
Artist            is Any    Berlin Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmoniker, Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra
Label             is Any    Warner Classics, EMI Classics


Then add a Sort order, perhaps by Album > Disc# > Track#

Thanks,

Tried your smartlist code suggestion and it worked.  However, for label, after choosing "is An" for Artist, did not give me another is Any choice.  However, for the "is" choice, I was able to check the two labels of interest.  All works well.  Thanks.

One feature I've asked for before... is for "virtual albums"... yes we can do that with playlists... but that involves a different user process for playback of actual albums and virtual albums.

Imagine creating a virtual album that shows up just like a regular album in the panes and can be selected for PlayingNow the same as any normal album.

Alternatively by making use of the "Conductor" and "Orchestra" Fields/Tags the smartlist rules become

Conductor      is any       Simon Rattle
Orchestra       is             Berlin Philharmonic; Berlin Philharmoniker; Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra
Label             is             Warner Classics; EMI Classics

I don't have any classical music works where Simon Rattle is conducting so I used Claudio Abbado in the attached example
