Remove iTunes tracks disassociated from files

For macOS 10.10 or later. Scans iTunes for tracks whose files are inaccessible or no longer available (so-called "dead" tracks, as indicated by a circled "!" next to their names) and removes them. Outputs a tab-delimited text log listing the tracks that were removed by Artist, Name, Album and last known file location. Optional dry run mode allows you to log the tracks that would have been deleted.
