Help please! Organizing massive amounts of music with file operation

I need to organize thousands of loose release into folders based on publisher/label.

They are currently in folders where I use this patter to sort them all into one place:
[ '['%catalognumber%']'] %album artist% - %album%[ '['%date%']']/%filename%

I want to keep that format, but also have them created under another hierarchy based on publisher name.

Thanks!

also i tried this [%publisher%/][ '['%catalognumber%']'] %album artist% - %album%[ '['%date%']']%filename%

which is almost right, but does not create release subfolders

Did you mean to remove the path separator before the %filename%? If that doesn't resolve your problem then it might be worth giving an example (using an actual CD release) of how you'd like it to look.
