So stupid!!!!
When I put cover flow view, it puts the artwork many times if I have the same album with different artists in it (like Artist Feat. X, artist Feat. Y).
Thats why it puts the same artwork many times!!!!
I scroll and I see the artwork srveral times!!!
Can I solve This problem!!!

Select all the songs from the album, Get Info, then group as compilation.

That's what Album Artist is for... and Compilations... ;)

Note that albums with different cover art doesn't behave well when tagged as Compilations... :(

It won't if you sort by Album instead of Artist.

Cover Flow view reacts to how you're sorting your library at the time, if you want to see just a single instance of an album cover, sort by Album.

What is the new album artist thing?
And how do I use It?

Like this: On Whitesnake's silver year anniversary album there are some David Coverdale solo tracks and some Coverdale/Page collaboration tracks, and these tracks are labelled accordingly. But I've sat Album Artist to "Whitsnake", so when I'm in list view and sort by Album (or Album by Artist) the whole album are shown together:

57390

Now if I remove the Album Artist tag all the "non-Whitesnake" songs are not shown with the rest of the album...

57391

...and are actually scattered around according to their Artists tag:

57392

Hope this was a bit helpful... :)

general preference "group compilations when browsing".

OK!!!
Thanks ALOT!
But now, I have one last question: isn't there an easy way to set all the albums artists at once instead of taging for hours?
Thanks!

If you select a bunck of songs at once you can make changes to all of them at once. Just slect them and then choose get info. you get a warning and then you are good to go.

Yes, i Know.
But I mean for ALL the library at once.
