    I have an obsession where I like to have my albums, artists and songs organized and written in one way, if that makes sense at all.

    Anyway, I just don't like album titles have parentheses next to them like this for example:

    Joe Walsh- Analog Man (Bonus Track Version)
    Them Crooked Vultures- Them Crooked Vultures (Bonus Track Version)
    Slash- Apocalyptic Love (Deluxe) [Feat. Myles Kennedy & Conspirators] - This one drives me nuts

    I don't understand for the need to add those parentheses and what's additional to the CD. It makes my Library look so....cluttered, messy, longer. I just want the the name of the artist and album title. Some of these artists have multiple CDs, but without those extra junk. However, I do want the bonus tracks. Is there a way that I can get rid of the parentheses in my library?

    Select all the tracks on a given album. Right click and select Get Info. Modify the album name to whatever you want. Click OK. Repeat for each album name you want to modify.

    I have done this with all my albums as I agree it looks messy and the info is meaningless to me as far as my library goes.

    I second

    I agree with LaWally. This is what I've done for any music that I've downloaded off of music blogs that comes formatted all wonky. It's just a bit time consuming depending on the formatting of the songs in your library.
