I have an album with multiple artists, but I can't get it to be displayed as a single album inside iTunes. I have many other albums with multiple artists, and they work fine. It's just this one album - in the grid and cover flow views, it's displayed as multiple albums with the various artists' names beneath them. Any ideas?:cool:

Fill in Album Artist as "Various Artists"

Are you sorting by artist or album?

You can sort by album or you can open iTunes, right click on the songs and "get info" then change the album artist to the album name.

I have selected all songs and then in the get info section try to have the same info in all of them, album, dates,coverflow etc. I have also used compilation. It has worked in most cases. I am trying to figure out why it does not work with some songs.

I am also using Tuneup software but with not much progress yet. No progress because of my lack of time not the sofware.

Hope it helps.

I'd rather keep the artists' names if possible

@Tallest Skil
by album

@jessica
that only worked for certain albums for some strange reason

my apologies. I had mistake artist for album artist. That worked quite well. Thanks!
