People you're missing the point. The thread is about labelling mp3s in order to best organise them in an electronic library. It's not about lebelling physical copies or even FZ himself.

I've got 68 FZ albums, 23 ZFT albums, 19 FZ cover albums and 181 albums from other artists on my iPhone. Some kind of organisation is necessary. That's what this thread is about. Nobody is trying to make a point about FZ.

My system was developed by my wife, if I really like the CD and play it on continues loop to long she throws it and the case cracks, depending on how cracked and/or broken the case is I can tell how much I like the CD so it is kept in a handy location... :smoke:

Plook, your system is superior to mine on that score. If my wife likes the CD, it just lives in the car and is never heard from again until we trade the car in and she makes me clean out the glove compartment.

I'm not complicating anything. I have a list of what I consider to be 40 core FZ albums. When I'm out and about I listen to those on shuffle. I have other lists that I do the same thing with. It's about how I choose to listen to the music so I've organised my MP3s in a way that makes that simple to do when I'm on the road. I wouldn't suggest that anyone else do the same, I'm happy with my system, it was easy to implement and it suits me.

If you read the message that started the thread, the guy just asked other people what they do as a conversation. We're just having a conversation. You're such a fucking nazi.

196607FreakOut
196704Absolutely Free
etc.

For any itunes users, what do you guys put under the artist name for your Zappa albums? Personally, I'm very anal about the whole thing and like to make sure I have the right name. Early albums are pretty easy, since it's just called The Mothers of Invention; the hard part comes afterwards. What would you guys label albums like Just Another Band From L.A., where the band is just named 'The Mothers'? Or what about albums like One Size Fits where the name is Frank Zappa and The Mothers Of Invention? Or how about Playground Psychotics, where one disc is with the Mothers and the other isn't? I know this all probably sounds petty, but hell, there had to some reason as to why they all had different names in the first place. Does anyone have the answer?


i made "zappa" a genre in my itunes library. so the artist is zappa, frank, then i have the album title, and they're all listed in the genre "zappa".

putting everything in a zappa genre might help with your organizational dilemma.

edit: didn't realize the original post was made 2 1/2 years ago.

Personally, the mp3 info has to make things easy to find when I'm using my iPod or iPhone. If your Zappa stuff is named in too complicated a way, then you have to remember all that detail when you're looking for a particular album. Something that works well for me is using genres to group albums. I have marked all official Zappa albums with the genre Zappa Official, all the boots as Zappa Boot, all covers as Zappa Cover and so on.

For example, if I want Le Bocal's Memorial Barbecue, I select the Genre option, select Zappa Cover then select All Albums. I get a list of all Zappa Cover albums and can easily find Le Bocal's album in the list and away I go. Or, if I want The Man From Utopia, I select the Genre option, select Zappa Official then select All Albums. I get a list of all Zappa official albums and can easily find TMFU in the list.

Meanwhile you can still keep all the other info intact, I mean, if you're going to mess with a field for your own convenience, who gives a shit about the genre field?
I've refined this since then. I have 40 albums that I consider Zappa's core stuff, so I've added a genre called Zappa Core. I've been listening to that every day on random for ages now while I'm out and about and it continues to amaze me.

Have you guys ever bothered to read the I-tunes terms and conditions? Of all the organisations out there trying to piece together your life history and DNA, Apple's T&Cs are the worst. I won't have any of their software anywhere near my computer... :P

So I've bought a copy of Tag & Rename and used that to categorise my collection (All .flac or .au from my vinyl collection or .wav from the CD only stuff) and now I can file it under any heading I like just by clicking on that column.

Incidentally, I too have 'genred' all my collection as 'Zappa' and I have a genre of 'Zappaesque' for all the wannabe stuff I've picked up along the way. And under artist I just put exactly what it says on the record label.

In my 1000+-collection, I sort them after Z, as in Zappa. :)
