12 Mar, 2013meIn progress. Still setting up the basic database and user interface (all still rudimentary). I think I have the basic structure of the database fixed (not always simple with relational databases). The basic tables Recording - A cd, or single, or record, or DVD. (One recording can have many tracks) Track - A part or division of a particular recording. (Many tracks can be on one recording AND many tracks can be one version) Version - If tracks are identical they are the same version. Normally a track will also be a unique version, the exceptions are greatest hits cds and singles and those odd times when the identical version appears on different cds. (One version can have many tracks) Song - One song can have multiple versions Subversion - The chords or lyrics or tab or chordpro of a particular version (one version will have multiple subversions)

Also I recently bought The Modern Lovers (castle reissue), another version of The Original Modern Lovers, Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers +4, Rock and Roll with the Modern Lovers +1, Take Me to the Plaza, There's Something about Mary (the movie not the cd), and Kingpin (the movie).
