Since I got my iPod a few weeks back I’ve been busily uploading music onto my computer for transfer. One cool feature that makes this easier is the iTunes online CD DataBase, which fills in the album title, artist, song titles and genre automatically. I’ve only had the CDDB come up empty once so far, and that was with a self-released CD by a local band. (Although it did supply the correct info for my own self-released CD!) But today it threw me a bit of a curve. I was uploading a recording of Mahler’s 8th Symphony on Denon, conducted by Elihu Inbal, which happens to be a double CD with one long track on each disc. Now the CDDB seems to get a bit confused with classical music. When I put in disc one, it correctly identified the recording, but put “Hymnus” (which is part of the name of the movement) for the artist’s name, where you’d expect the composer. So that was simple enough to change. Then when I moved on to the second disc, which consists of a single 54:38 track, it identified it as Angels with Dirty Faces by the Sugababes.
