Subject Re: schema design question

I'd consider a field like "associated_with_album", and a
field that identifies the kind of record this is "track or album".

Then you can form a query like -associated_with_album:true
(where '-' is the Lucene or NOT).

And then group by kind to get separate groups of albums and

Hope this helps
