When I try to get track info from discogs that is on compilation which have variations that compilation is not retrieved on the list. Compilation of course exists on discogs and artist is
entered correctly.

Test case 1
Artist = Afgan Whigs, The
There should be album Burning London: The Clash Tribute on the list
If You check it on discogs there is such album with appropriate artist (track 9),
but album is not listed.

Test case 2
Artist = Adam and the Ants
There should be album The Best Punk Album In The World ... Ever! on the list
If You check it on discogs there is such album with appropriate artist on two versions
(2xCD, Comp, RE) and (2xCass, Comp).

Have a look at my script, I fixed that issue.

It finds both releases without problem (not that you have a typo in the name of the first artist, it should be "Afghan Whigs, The")


However, this is something which will be changed by discogs very soon. In the future, there will be only one entry in the API-artist-list for releases with different versions.

The changes where anounce for December 15, 2011. But have been delayed to mid January 2012. So there will be an update of my script very soon
