Code challenge

A TechRepublic member recently sent me a private message regarding a recent download. The question:


Subject: cataloging mp3
Message: Hi Mark,
Great article, had a question after reading it, how does your script handle .mp3 files that have various artists in the artist field? There's another field called featured artist that has the artisit's name if the track came from a compilation cd. Does this code read this or do we need to modify accordingly?
Best Regards, Maria

In order to accomodate the featured artist field, the code would have to be modified. Rather than contact the author and ask for the modification, I thought perhaps someone in the TechRepublic community would like to take a crack at it. The code modification should work in a comment to this blog entry.

Anyone care to give it a shot?
