    Hey Terry,

    As far as I know, iTunes only supports a "year" field, which is mapped to some ID3 tag (for mp3 at least).

    Which tag it is mapped to depends on the version of ID3.

    • v2.3 supports TORY Original release year and TYER Year
    • v2.4 supports TDOR Original release time, TDRC Recording time, and TDRL Release time. (see for details)

    I'm not sure, which one iTunes uses—that's a question for Apple.
