Hi there,
We've been working toward showing composer/songwriter information in more song locations on the site.

Today we rolled out a fix that displays the songwriter at the top of a Song page like so:

We're still working on the best way to display this additional information within search results, but we wanted to get this out there as soon as we had it.

Thanks,
Zac

You formerly displayed a Composer column when searching specific song titles, albums or compilations. One could see all represented writers without having to click individual titles to summon that info. That seems to be the best---or at least most concise---way to display that info within search results. It's good to have the writer info displayed beneath a song title, too, but could you bring back the Composer column?

Please I just want all of your Composer/Songwriter information to be complete. AMG is usually very good at that but there's 1 album that you need to update. You need to add the composers' full names for the tracks on Strawberry Alarm Clock's debut LP "Incense and Peppermints" on the Sundazed label. If you could just update the composers' names for the title track "Incense and Peppermints" I'd be very much obliged. I've contacted you several times about this and my corrections still don't appear. I realize that you constantly have new albums to update but this would only take a second. Please all I'm asking is for you to update this one song please! If you want to contact me my email address is cartman643@yahoo.com. Thank You!

Thank you, Allmusic, for responding to requests for this feature - it is so useful to have this information included within the initial song searches.
It's good to know you are really taking notice of user's comments and working towards improving the site for everyone.

Personally, composer/songwriter on song search results was one of my favorite AllMusic features, so I'm glad folks in this thread are enjoying its return as much as I am.

Thank you for using AllMusic!

The Composer you have for the children's musical "Confi and the Magic Stone" is not the correct Dan Taylor. The correct composer and writer of this work is Daniel Michael Taylor of Keyser, Wv. His email address is taylor777@frontier.com

Thank you

Hi Cortney,
You or the correct Daniel Taylor should submit this correction to content.music@rovicorp.com with a helpful subject line like [Artist Name] Composer Correction and some supporting information, as our editors must verify corrections before making them.

Thank you for using AllMusic!
