Why is there no discography listing for certain artists? (i.e. Lila Downs)

Most of the artists I searched had obvious discography listings but when I went to see the albums of Lila Downs the page only lists songs in alphabetical order. Is this site under construction? Will it be updated soon? If not and some artists just have a listing of songs I think this is a great misfortune for a site that I have used for years as a reference for many many musical artists.

Yes Joseph, this is a weird issue we are trying to track down.

These are albums by Lila Downs:

http://www.allmusic.com/album/tree-of...
http://www.allmusic.com/album/alma-de...
http://www.allmusic.com/album/the-ver...

but when I click to see her Artist Information, she has no discography:

We're working on resolving this.
Thanks for the heads-up.

Zac, please change this topic to a problem for tracking. Why is the album "The Tarnished Gold" missing from the discography for Beachwood Sparks?

Beachwood Sparks is another one we are trying to pin down. For some reason, a small handful of albums aren't being linked to the main artist ID (the new Asia album "XXX" is another example).

We're working on it.

How about Nancy Griffith. No discography for her either.

Hi Joey,
Were you thinking of Nanci Griffith (spelled with an "i")?
