When a Release is part of a MultiDiscRelease, the DiscNumber is the number of the disc in that set.

Disc numbers follow DiscNumberStyle.

Note that a DiscNumber is not the same as a VolumeNumber. VolumeNumbers are usually added to releases that are not released together and not on the same date; DiscNumbers indicate releases which are part of a MultiDiscRelease, sold as one item.

Examples

ReleaseTitle: "The Best of Jimi Hendrix (disc 1)"

  • Disc number: "1"

ReleaseTitle: "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (disc 2: Twilight to Starlight)"

  • Disc number: "2"
