Spotify Tip: Searching By Music Label

spotify Working at home like I do, I’m spoiled rotten by the fact that I can listen to anything I want, as loud (or as quiet) as I want, all day long. For a music-lover like me, it’s heaven on Earth. Whether this adds or detracts from my productivity is up for debate I suppose, but the fact of the matter is that I adore being able to have music playing whenever I want. And for most of those working hours, it’s Spotify that I typically turn to for my tunes.

One thing I noticed early on in my Spotify experience is that the service doesn’t make it very easy to search their library for music from a particular record label. For some people, certain record labels have well-earned reputations for quality, or for music of a particular genre. It’s nice to be able to search for those labels to see their entire catalog (or at least the parts of their catalog available to stream) all in one place. It’s a fantastic discovery tool for finding new music or artists.

Unfortunately, on Spotify you can’t just enter the label name in the search field. With most other services, you can just enter the label name and you’re good to go. But no, it’s a little bit trickier than that with Spotify. But it’s not that difficult. Here’s the trick:

In the search field, type the word ‘label.’ Then enter a colon. That’s the two dots thing. ‘:’ Then, in quotation marks, enter the label name. It’s all crucial. Forget the colon, it won’t work. Forget the quotation marks, it won’t work. It should look like this (with the label name in this case being Numero Group):

label:”numero group”

Spotify will then show you a list of all the titles available from that particular label. I’m not positive, but it seems that the more popular titles are listed first, the less-listened to towards the bottom, although that doesn’t always seem to be the case.

And that’s it! Happy Listening.

Wait! Since we’re’s talking about the service, here’s a Spotify playlist for you. It’s my big bad playlist of 60’s hits (and misses.)
