Title: LABEL / PUBLISHER
Post by: Adil on 2021-06-13 18:52:22
Hi there.

I am organizing a vast audio file library using foobar2000 and am confused about which tag to keep to specify the "stamp" of discs eg: Vertigo, Warner Bros. Recording, Castle Communications, etc...

I've already researched it from several sources, but I'm still confused. What is the difference between "Publisher" and "Label"? And which one should I keep to label the above information?

Thanks in advance.

These may, or may not, help:

Discogs info on Label etc (https://support.discogs.com/hc/en-us/articles/360005006614-Database-Guidelines-4-Label-Catalog)

musicbrainz info on label (https://musicbrainz.org/doc/Label)

Thank you very much! I go with "Label".

But I can't understand the usefulness of "PUBLISHER" or even "CATALOG".

LABEL is free from translation imposed by various players. The field will always read "Label" irrespective of the format and not "Organisation", "Publisher" or "Tpub", which simplifies scripting. Catalog is for a number (either human readable or barcode), not the name.
