Cover Art doesn't display in the side bar - how to get this back?

How do you get to display in the side bar in iTunes 11? Seems to have disappeared but I can't find the option to bring it back. In my Songs view it's just that - a text list of songs.Having the artwork in the bottom left corner was good.

Not possible. This is why I am keeping with 10.7.

Boneheaded decision by the iTunes team. I won't be upgrading until they fix this, as well as album art in song list view. It's like Apple Maps all over again...

It's enough to keep me from updating to the latest version of iTunes.......

I wish I hadn't upgraded...

And it isn't possible to revert using Time Machine either.

Not happy, but not surprised that they took this out. Apple are always removing perfectly good features that work perfectly well for no good reason. I think they do it on purpose to try and force long-time users to try the 'new way' that they are currently enjoying in Cupertino this week.

I'm staying on iTunes 10.7 for now, for this and a few other reasons. I have tried out iTunes 11, but I did so in a virtual machine (Parallels) install of Mountain Lion because I was concerned they'd do stupid stuff like this. I actually like some of the things in iTunes 11, but it's almost all aesthetic and not functional, and I use iTunes too much to lose functionality I like just for it to be a bit prettier.

As always, leave feedback with Apple, it improves our chances of getting features we want back returned, even if only by a little bit.

The biggest issue I have with this is that iTunes in LOUSY at finding album art to begin with. That means that I have to hunt it down and add it myself. Now how will I do that?
