Artist / Track to retrieve Album, get earliest album?

I posted this over on RapidAPI, but it doesn't look like anyone responds to those. (And I *am* paying, via that. Never occurred to me to come look directly at this site.)

Regarding this endpoint, often the Album information returned is a "Greatest Hits' album.
Is there any way to specify, "no, I'd like the OLDEST (as in "original" or "earliest") album that this was released on?" Like adding a sort and sort type (asc/desc).

Also, couple of notes for the developers:
1. I'm sure this is a multi-tenant site with your other ****DB's. I'm on TheAudioDB, page title (in browser tab) shows TheSportsDB.
2. On the login page, there's a "Don't have a login, signup here" link. That page is NOT the same destination page as the "Sign Up" button in the top menu. Check it out, the followed link from the login form doesn't have a submit button, nor does it work at all.

Appologies for the late reply on this one...

Hmm I've heard of RapidAPI but never looked, I wonder if they are keeping the money haha Always best to sign up here!

Not currently but its certainly something I could look into. Can you let me know which API method you are using? Maybe I could add a special "get original albums" switch to it.

Which page specifically? Probably copy and paste error

2. On the login page, there's a "Don't have a login, signup here" link. That page is NOT the same destination page as the "Sign Up" button in the top menu. Check it out, the followed link from the login form doesn't have a submit button, nor does it work at all.

Nice find! fixed.
