Style for BoxSets

There are two cases of BoxSets:

  1. A set of albums or singles which are also available seperately;
  2. A multi-album compilation.

(1) In the first case, we currently don't cater for retaining box set information and simply treat the albums as seperate albums. The rationale is that we can't cater for everything with the current system, and adding box set details will clutter up the titles for non-box-set owners. This will probably change when AdvancedRelationships becomes available.

(2) In the second case, the box set title becomes the overall ReleaseTitle for a MultiDiscRelease and we follow the DiscNumberStyle. Thus the following is correct:

"Box_Set_Title (disc 2)"

"Box_Set_Title (disc 1: Album_Title)"

In some cases, there will be multiple boxes to a box set. In such cases, use the following convention:

"Box_Set_Title (box 3, disc 2)"

"Box_Set_Title (box 2: Box_Title, disc 1)"

"Box_Set_Title (box 4, disc 2: Album_Title)"

"Box_Set_Title (box 1: Box_Title, disc 3: Album_Title)"


"Joe Bloggs Collected Works (disc 2: The Later Years)"

"The Led Zeppelin Box Set (box 2, disc 3)"

"Live at the Gorge 05/06 (box 2: 2006-07-22, disc 2)"
