Songwriter Identification when searching by song.

I am a long time fan and user of all music. I have been reviewing the new Beta site and generally like it. Love the integration with Spotify. One of the things I use All Music for is to identify songwriters of certian songs. In the Beta, when I put in the name of a song, I don't see where the songwriter is easily identified. Maybe I am missing something.

Keep up the good work.

No kidding. No songwriter info?? What the f*ck are you thinking? This used to be the best resource on the web. It weren't broke, why did you try to fix it?

Why are writers no longer listed when searching a song title? For one trying to find out how many artists recorded a very certain song, it can't be done on the new format. That should be brought back.

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:



http://www.allmusic.com/song/wooden-s...

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

Thanks,
Zac

Today we rolled out an updated version of our search results page that displays composer/songwriter info within song search results wherever it is available in our data.
