Some artists are not yet on muscbrainz for example, it would be great to have a way to still add them to lidarr and have lidarr maybe search periodically for that artist for releases.

@HamilcarH is there another metadata source for identifying information on them besides musicbrainz that you could suggest? Lidarr requires a metadata source as a reference.

another reason to have discogs

Needed to use discogs recently as the single was not coming up on musicbrainz or Picard, fallback for singles?

Why not add the artist to musicbrainz?

| DjRicko commented 8 months ago

Just add discogs as a backup. As a comparison, artist back from the 2000s: - Discogs: 4 Singles with more then 30 different versions including promos etc. containing remixes not found anywhere else - MusicBrains: 3 of the singles with a SINGLE version, no CD-Maxis at all. Also everything but ONE single seems to be missing in the default mirror of musicbrainz lidarr uses.
