    If you want to see fanart ;)
    Latest version is here not via MPEI though. I would suggest you disable music grabbing whilst looking at this else you will end up with lots of duplication

    That was me, and it was the same artist indeed (Jimmy Cliff).
    dB attached.

    You're too fast :) (i had already edited my post)

    Jimmy Cliff is the Artist in question. Album name: Ultimate Collection (1999)
    a quick look in the dB shows ArtistInfo, but no AlbumInfo present.

    Tested latest version, all seems fine - get all the artist thumbs and fanart as before, but most are better quality (y)
    Artist clearart and Artist CDart looks good, artist bio in German is not so bad ;)
    Only problem seeing atm is this one (wrong title duration):

    Found some more:
    When an album has text for the review, then the titles are shown in reversed order:

    10-11-02.jpg 10-11-06.jpg

    When an album does not have text for the review, then the titles are ordered correct:

    10-11-38.jpg 10-11-42.jpg

    I also found that searching from the context menu doesn´t work either.
    If I click on "Show Album/Artist info", it always returns "No album info found" (even for well known artists like Chicago, Phil Collins, Bryan Adams etc.) ;)

    That is the order from theaudiodb.com for some reason. I will sort it properly

    This is MP. The artist / album grabbing code is broken because allmusic.com has changed its layout. That is something in core MP not this plugin.

    Oddly Bryan Adams though is not actually on allmusic.com so we have never been able to grab a bio for him. You can get English, Hungarian and French bio from the audiodb.com though so he should be showing up now
