Trying to alter multiple album titles for live shows
I currentely have a ton of live Grateful Dead shows that I have labled in this format:  77-05-11 - Cornell University.  I would like to simply add 19 to the "77" so I end up with 1977-05-11 - Cornell University.  Can someone please tell me how to do this.  I have hundreds of shows that I would simply like to add "19" to the beginning of the album name.  I know this is possible but I have tried a few things that don't work, it should be easy.  I appreciate your input to my request, thanks.

Many possible methods. One way:
Select them all.
Rt click > Properties > Highlight Album field in properties dialog > rtclick > Format from other fields > In pattern box $replace(19%album%,,)

Please test with a single track
