which quick route would you take to go about the following renaming instances?

The following lines in the customer renaming creator should work (do no copy the single quotes):

Row: 1
Search: '(?1)-'
Replace: ' '
Row: 2
Search: '_'
Replace: ' - '
Row: 3
Search: 'the'
Replace: 'The'

To change fields (like the artist and title), you have to use the grouping feature of regular expressions.

Expanding the previous example with row 4:

Row: 1
Search: '(?1)-'
Replace: ' '
Row: 2
Search: '_'
Replace: ' - '
Row: 3
Search: ''the'
Replace: ''The'
Row: 4
Search: '(?E)^(.*?) - (.*)'
Replace: '\2 - \1'

This should switch the artist/title fields from the example names you gave earlier.

Peter.
