I am cleaning up my iTunes music collection and want to set up playlists sorted by decade and genre (60's onwards to today).
The trouble is I have found that tracks purchased from iTunes do not give the correct year of release as I had originally thought they would. Logically enough if a track is on a compilation or re-release of an album, then the Year listed by iTunes is that year, not the original date of release.
I have been using Wikipedia discography for the bands concerned but as that is getting to be pretty tedious I'm hoping there is a simpler method to gather the information needed. I don't need the month, only the year.
