I'm trying to use the API and for the most part, I enjoy it very much. However, I'm trying to retrieve the releases for an artist sorted by releaseDate.
According to the documentation, I should be able to add response=sorts to retrieve the available parameters to sort by. However, adding response=sorts gives me a 400 error (Bad Request). I am able to sort by artistName (sort=ArtistName+), the example from the documentation, but something like sort=releaseDate+ (just a guess) doesn't work.
Congrats for finding our first Music API bug! Wish I had a prize for you, but for now, you can be content in that we just fixed the response=sorts bug for the next release. And "releaseDate" is not currently an available sort order for the Release services; for sure, we'll add that too. Thanks for the feedback-- keep it coming. --Scott, Yahoo Music API Team
