Year not showing on albums released before 1970

hello i have a bizarre issue

as you can see in this screenshot AO doesn’t display the year

but it’s clearly in the tags

or here

what’s more bizarre, it doesn’t happen with albums released after 1971

some examples

liege & lief is 1969

all my albums before 1970 are not showing year

Yes big bug in that field mentioned many times

Strangely, at first glance appears to be OK here:

Although the Release Date is blank within Studio…

…and 1969 from within my tag editor:


Agreed, a bug that seems to have been there for ages.
You’d think it’d be reatively easy to fix?

older version was tagging wrong date 31/12/1968 for 1969 ??? why again :slight_smile:

there is the year of the album that goes in the tracks tag window
and also the release date of the album… 2 different places in Audirvana.

You can add the year tab in your layout if you want…

Hi @cosmicpoems,

Can you please send us one of the files of this album at [email protected]?


I have sent a file at [email protected]

Got it, thank you.

Every albums 1970 and under won’t get the release date… then if you change metadata like recompute DR or remove stars then save, the date will vanished after… you have to do all editing before writing the released date by hand…

Yes I have noticed that the date disappear, it’s very odd because when I finish listening to an album, I will change metadata like year or album cover, Audirvāna will display the year, but then the date will disappear the next day or so

We will take a look at this issue next week and come back to you.
