More precise chronological order?

I use grid view and sort album by year. It works nicely most of the time but when an artist has multiple albums in the same year, it will sort alphabetically within that year. This causes some albums to not be in perfect chronological order.

A remedy to this would be if you could also specify the month in which the album was released. Is anything like this possible?

I put the release dates in the "Sort album" field.

Please Please Me by The Beatles would be,

Beatles 1963-03-22 Stereo

and With The Beatles,

Beatles 1963-11-22 Mono

So it goes:

Band name / Release date YYY-MM-DD / Additional info (Disc N, Mono/Stereo,...)

The additional info is to make sure no 2 albums have identical sort album fields (otherwise they'll appear as one in the browser.)
