Here are more quotes:

   > 'I have no desire to refer to the foobar2000 title-formatting syntax help file on a regular basis until it all becomes second nature to me'

   > 'I have no desire to refer to the foobar2000 query syntax help file on a regular basis until it all becomes second nature to me'

   > 'I have no desire to free myself from myself'

   > 'I have no desire to discover if the idealised potential of my consumption is a perfect substitution for actual reality'

Would you learn the complete syntax of a new foreign language just so that you could order a "frappo cappuccino laced with mildew, one ice cube, and a frog" ?.

I guess the answer is to have two year fields

Good idea!

I think I'm going to retag my collection with two year fields, Track Year, and, Release Year, or perhaps Track Year can be "Composed", maybe that would be better for Classical music.

I will group within playlist view by, %album% %date%, (date is the release year) and create a new column to display Track Year, or Composed.

any ideas or refinements to the above are welcome.

EDIT;

I have decided to allocate "Date" as year track was composed, and create "Release" as year album was released.

This has simplified my Album Group scheme syntax considerably for ALL albums to %album% %release%, with the Year or date field in a column displaying the year the track was composed, great for classical too.
