searching releases

Currently, search can't find releases that are titled differently from their main albums. For example, Dave Alvin released "Romeo's Escape" in America but I'd have to know its European alias title before searching for it.

Hi Rootsmusic,
If you go to the main album page for Romeo's Escape (http://www.allmusic.com/album/romeos-...) and click the Releases tab (http://www.allmusic.com/album/every-n...) you'll find listings for Every Night About This Time, the title it was released under in Europe.

That said, it looks like it's only listed on his discography as Every Night...; I got to Romeo's Escape via the album search, and it's also linked in Alvin's bio.

Thanks!

Chyrsta, I reported a problem because the search box doesn't search releases that are titled differently from their main albums. How did you find the album "Romeo's Escape" via the search box?

Sorry, I mistyped earlier. The search found the song "Romeo's Escape", which in turn links back to the album of that name.

Just FYI I think we have this issue licked now, at least in cases we've identified.

Searching for "Romeo's Escape" brings back "Every Night About This Time"
