Search filters for original publications and more

Hey guys, something I've come up against once or twice which has made making playlists more time consuming:

 

When adding tracks, particularly for popular artists who are frequently on compilations, I'd love the ability to filter search results by original publication date or perhaps a sidebar option to display multiple instances of the same track.

Take "Livin on a Prayer" as an example, the sidebar might show

- First seen on Bon Jovi – Slippery When Wet

- Re-released on Bon Jovi – Cross Road (Sound & Vision)

- Also featured on Glee Cast – Start Me Up / Livin' On A Prayer (Glee Cast Version)

 

Here, for the purists you can link to the original album, check for a re-release (with possibly expanded/ remastered audio) and see the most popular 3rd option

 

Couldn't find anything similar in the topics already but please do let me know if this has been answered elsewhere
