      Description

      Apparently, the artist search field in tag lookup is also being used in the "name" column's weighting, rather than the release search field's value. It's hard to tell quite what is actually being searched, though given the 'Found 1,246 results for ""' which is returned.

      Try this search: http://musicbrainz.org/taglookup?artist=Pearl+Jam&release=2009-10&tracknum=&track=&duration=&filename=&puid=

      It should at least have any bootlegs from 2009-10 in the results. Instead, you get "Pearl Jam" titled releases from Pearl Jam, then other "Jam", "Pearl", and "Pearl Jam" releases from other artists. No 2009-10 releases at all (and there are some).
