Would it be possible to do a web lookup on album just like on Artist (in now playing pane)

I probably don't understand what exactly you mean -- how and where would it be initiated?

In the layout for now playing artwork you have Title, Artist and Album. If you click on artist you get the page with a web blurb. Album could work the same.

In all the places I tested, the Album is hyperlinked to the Album page. I wonder whether there are some specific conditions needed to reproduce? Could you post a screenshot?

Thanks,
Jiri

It does go to the album page ... but does not do the web search for information on the album. So if i clicked Album the album page comes up with alll the tracks etc .. but would like if possible to have it bring up wikipedia or discogs page of the album. So album is ABBEY ROAD and click on the 'album' link and it brings up https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbey_Road

Shouldn't online tab do that?

Still can't reproduce - Album view is correctly shown for me, together with the Album description downloaded from Wikipedia and shown regardless Online/My Library selection. Maybe it just doesn't work for some albums, that either don't have Wikipedia article, or a link to the article from MusicBrainz? This wouldn't be the case for Abbey Road though.

Not sure what the "online tab" is.

I will test it through again tonight and get back a couple of names that should work.

I found some that work the way that I would want it to so thanks for that. I can only guess that the ones that didn't work is because of a lack of data at MB
