Artists and Years view

Artists view should use the artwork embedded in the tags (e.g. images of the image type "Artist"), if present.

At the time being, the images in the tags are ignored and all artists are listed with the first two characters of their names instead.

Don't get me wrong, I like the lookup to discogs images when entering an individual artist, but it requires me to process roughly 400 artists. Moreover, the "lookup images" will not be embedded in the tags of the songs, obviously they are just content of the MMW library.

Another issue comes with the "Year view", Sadly, the view uses the "date" field and cannot be configured to use the "original date". Numbers of my albums have a release date, which differs remarkably from the original date (especially in the case of classical music). It would be nice to have the option to set the "Year view" to "Date" or to "Original Date".

I'd also prefer "original date" to "date" or at least have the option.
