      Description

      http://www.jthink.net/jaikozforum/posts/list/19630.page#35077

      Usually this doesn't happen anyway because only the main artist is added to the ALBUMARTIST field.

      But if I look at the MusicBrainz discography for Steve Aoki https://musicbrainz.org/artist/a39acc4a-985e-4173-a9ed-f325f2d3bc1c
      I can see that whilst albums do have him as the album artist for singles there are many collabaritive cases

      So perhaps I should simply extend "Only use main artist in the artist field and discard other artists" to album artists", perhaps "Only use main artist in the (album) artist field and discard other artists" to album artists , or perhaps I need another option ?
