Hi Gracenote Community,

I was wondering if the following is possible using the API.

I have a large database of songs (Artist | Title). And I was hoping to use the platform/API to match these songs with their corresponding genres and “earliest” release dates.

For example:

  • Search for songs (by Artist & Title)
    • Ex: Yesterday by the Beatles
  • Find the genre tags for those songs
    • Ex: Pop, Rock,
  • Find the earliest known release date for those songs
    • Ex: 1965 (as opposed to all the other years this song was released)

We’ve been looking thru some of this documentation.

And although it seems promising, we can’t find exactly what we’re looking for.

Any tips or ideas?

Cheers guys,
