Re: how do I search within a record label?

Just type: label:[LABEL]

 

Without the square brackets, of course. Example: Universal

Works fine for me on the desktop client and the web player. Which label are you searching for - if it is more than one word, put quotation marks around the label name.

Re: how do I search within a record label?

I have used this feature in the seach bar and it partially works. I searched "Morr Music" and got only a couple of albums instead of their whole catalog. Would love to see Spotify improve this feature. Digging through a label's back catalog is my favorite way to learn about new music.

Re: how do I search within a record label?

I just learned about this feature in this thread. As you reported, I get only a few results for "Morr Music", but I get a lot more searching for "Morr". Maybe that will give you what you want.

 

A note to others having problems with this: I wasn't getting the results I wanted in the desktop search until i realized that there shouldn't be a space between the colon and the label name - label:steeplechase instead of label: steeplechase.

 

This is a great feature!

Sorry. Still not sure how to best find everything by, say the label "Blue Horizon". (To give a more common name than Morr Music) Exacly what shall I write into the search box.

Type this in the search box:

 

label:"Blue Horizon"

 

The quotes are needed if you want an exact match for a term containing more than one word.

Thanks.

 

I wonder why don't you make such information part of your FAQ? A person looking for the information have to dig up an obscured forum thread.

 

How is your company management structure in the first place? No offense, I guess I am not the first you heard that you may have the best offer of the streaming music services but the user interface of the Spotify app (I use Windows and the web) is the most horrible.

 

Sorry, I don't have time to open new topics for everything, just my bug report:

 

Right click on the cover of the album while playing it, it says in bold Go To and clicking on itdoes nothing.

 

My setup can be found here: http://community.spotify.com/t5/Help-Desktop-Linux-Mac-and/CAN-ONLY-PLAY-ONE-TRACK-AT-A-TIME-FROM-CH...

 

Oh, wait: no permalinks to forum posts? As expected, but no offense :)

Re: how do I search within a record label?

OK. So now I was even able to search for label:"!K7 Records"

 

I wonder how it gets determined that what albums from the K7 catalogue or any label, for the matter goes into Spotify and what doesn't get included?
