    Compilation, OST and bootlegs.

    I've got problems with tagging these three.

    On compilations, for example: Deutsche Elektronische Musik ¿Who do I tag the composer of this one? ¿V.A. or Various Artists?
    ¿And what about OST? I mean is the same problem, right?

    The other problem is about bootlegs. I've recorded The Radio Dept. 's gig, but I don't know how to tag it, the album has to have name of the venue and the date or is it the song, or both? And how do I separate the date? With "/" "-" or "."?

    The album artist? That should probably be Various Artists and then set the track artists to the various artists. I found http://musicbrainz.org/release/479c3c38-6b60-4eb3-8936-ff59b3891ae0 that looks similar, but not identical.

    For a guide on bootlegs you could have a look at http://musicbrainz.org/doc/Style/Specific_types_of_releases/Live_bootlegs

    Please do yourself and Last.fm a favour and fix your tags. The easiest way is to use Musicbrainz Picard.

    Thank you, now I can fix the compilations tag. But I didn't get the bootlegs tag, I thought it should be "Artist - Title Track (venue - City, Country and date )" or maybe the venue and date should go to the albums name. Theres something about musicbrainz I cannot trust.

    Yes, you can tell the various performances apart using the album name. Like for instance http://musicbrainz.org/release/5555caea-3de8-480b-9952-421471a62517
