Append user-entered text to beginning or ending of selected tag of each selected track

Append the same user-entered text to the beginning or ending of the existing text in the chosen tag (Song Name, Artist, Album Artist, Album, Composer, Comments, Genre, Grouping or Show Name, and their Sort siblings) in each selected track.

For tags other than "Song Name" and "Show Name", this script may be just slightly less involved than performing a multi-edit on the selected tracks
