File Under A (All bands/artists/composers)

I’ve got a lot of time on my hands and a limited amount of space since remodeling the basement. So I’ve decided to (try again) and rip all of my CDs and then put them in storage. Since part of this is 1)put CD 2)wait for metadata to pop up 3)hit “import” and 4) repeat over and over, I had some time to wonder what artists I’m missing.
