    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...

    I miss this feature too.. but come on. That's a bit of an exaggeration.

    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.

    :mad:

    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?
