Album Record Label and Type from music files tags #10573
Albums have label and type fields that can currently only be filled by scraping from NFO files and maybe from online sources (?). Yet music files can be tagged with record label and release type information that could be used to populate these fields.
This adds processing of the LABEL (TPUB) and RELEASETYPE (MUSICBRAINZ ALBUM TYPE) tags and uses them to poplate the album library data. Both label and type fields are avaliable in smart playlist rules, so this extends the way that users can explore their music collection.
Note the album table also has a "releasetype" field, this is used internally to flag if the entry in the album table is a real "album" or a "single" e.g. a fake album created to cover all the singles by that artist. We must take care not to confuse the two.
