MediaMonkey uses freeDB.org for tagging albums and tracks.

http://www.freedb.org/freedb_search.php

Here’s what it returned for the groups you listed Amie. If you go to the site above and check for more make sure to use quotation marks around the name of the group or track or however you are searching or it will return everything with any of the words in it.

Lowest of the Low:
The Lowest of the Low / Night of the Living Assholes Details
Lowest Of The Low / Motel 30 Details
The Lowest Of The Low / Shakespeare My Butt Details
Lowest of the Low / nothing short of a bullet Details
The Lowest of the Low / Hallucigenia
The Lowest of the Low / Shakespeare My Butt
Lowest of the Low / City Full of Cowards
Lowest Of The Low / Rare Tracks
The Lowest of the Low / Nothing Short Of A Bullet [Studio Disc]

Tragically Hip:
110 results but some are duplicates

The Guess Who:
156 results but some are duplicats

Crash Test Dummies
93 results but some are duplicates

Chantal Kreviazuk:
Chantal Kreviazuk / Leaving On A Jet Plane (CDS)

I actually don’t use MediaMonkey for tagging since most of my 56,000+ tracks are downloaded using “Radio Tracker,” part of the AudialsOne package so they come already tagged off internet radio. What I have tagged are CDs using Exact Audio Copy which does use freeDB.org and I have only ever run across a few CDs it didn’t have.

Cheers,
Dean

P.S. I don’t use iTunes so I can’t vouch for MediaMonkey either working or playing nice with it, however it does seem to play just about anything else I’ve thrown at it. It also syncs with my Galaxy S phone.

No it shouldn't, but I said absolutely nothing of the sort-or even implied it-nor would/should I.

By picking on me, I'm talking about treating others the same. I'm definitely not the first person to call something junk. I'm definitely not the first person to swear on the forum. BUT you've vetoed me on both occasions whilst giving others a pass.

And having met you, knowing your character, I would never suggest that you thought someone was junk (or something of the like) because your opine of their product is junk. Just sayin', friend.

Then it looks like what we have here is a failure to communicate effectively. You should definitely fire your transcriber.

Really? That's awesome! Thanks for mentioning that, Dean; I have the same phone.

I don't know if you use LastFM, but this article explicates how to set up Auto-DJ with a LastFM plugin.

There, that's fairly eclectic! A few generations, a few genres . . .


With exception to "Lowest of the Low", I luckily have at least one CD of those groups and artist. Give me a day or two to get use to it and test er' out, and I'll report back smile .

Edit - Oops, it looks like Dean's the man and already taken care of things......?

Yup, Dean's got me hooked up. Now, gotta get you some Lowest of the Low! Classic Canadian stuff! smile I'm hoping to try MediaMonkey this weekend. And failing that - gasp - I'll have to make my own playlists!

I just listened to their song "Salesmen, Cheats And Liars" on YouTube, and it is good stuff.

Thanks for introducing them to me. I'm going to pick up a CD.

The cult classic from the 90s was YouTube: Rosy and Grey Rosy and Grey. Ian and I had the opportunity to see them do their 20th Anniversary Reunion Tour at Massey Hall this spring (my first time at Massey Hall! WOW!) and he was bemused to note that the entire audience knew every word to that tune and I'm not sure the band sang at all!

Although it's hard to recognize him with the blindfold on, the man on the far right on the album cover is Stephen Stanley who sang at the Axiom party last summer with the guys from Laganza. Gosh - was that a year ago??


Anyway, glad you're discovering them! They re-released on vinyl if you're interested in vinyl.
