Find all EMI songs in the iTunes Library
Authored by: solipsism on Apr 06, '07 08:33:32AM

This is helpful. Thanks.

Is it possible to make an AppleScript that intereacts with iTunes by creating a playlist that will then list all of my EMI songs within iTunes so I don't have to bother with a text file?

It can be done, but will require a little work ;)

Also, as the original poster noted, all EMI tracks' metadata may not contain the text "EMI", so there are the other labels to incorporate, too.

If I have time I will post this at my site.

BTW, in case my initial "Neat!" comment is not enough, the original poster's idea is a very, very clever use of Spotlight scripting.

It would be helpful to know the exact text to look for regarding the specific EMI labels. For instance, I fished some out with "Virgin" and "Blue Note", but nothing on "Chrysalis" or "Capitol". I have over 2000 iTunes Store purchases, but, of course, can't possibly have a representative track from each of EMI's subsidiary labels.
