    I have lots of my favorite albums in iTunes. All are very well organized with all their title/artist/album artist/name. Well however, some of my albums have multiple up to 7~8 disc and each disc is mixed by different artist. And I want all of them to be display under one Album including individual artist name. Like previously I had separated different album names with (Disc #) written on the end of each album title which made them separated as two or more, depending on the number of disc.
    Here for example,

    Please click on the image

    I don't like keeping my album this way separated, so what I did is, I put the same album name for all the tracks and given them separate disc name like this and they displayed as under...


    But the problem here is, I can't know which of the disc is mixed by which artist.
    On the first case, I can know by seeing its album name because its written there, but on the later I can't. For instance, here 1st Disc is mixed by 'Simon Patterson' and 2nd by 'Talla 2XLC' but I am not being able to put these names there. This is 2 CD box so I can know easily, but this case is different for 5+ CD's Box.

    So, all I want some solution so that I do something to display which CD is mixed by which artist.

    All I was thinking if I can just put those Disc 1 & Disc 2 names as
    Disc 1 (Mixed by Simon Patterson)
    Disc 2 (Mixed by Talla 2XLC)

    would solve my problem.

    I have did some research but couldn't the solution at all.
    So Please help! Any inputs from you guys is much more appreciated.

    This is something similar which I found from another website but its not a complete solution for me, what Peter said here is:
    "I’ve been using Grouping to keep track of the contents of Box Sets. Sometimes a box set is just a box set, and you can name it ‘Eagles Box Set’, tag it disk 1/3, 2/3, 3/3 – and that’s enough. But if the box set contains cd’s with individually different names, such as CD1: Eagles – Eagles, CD2: Eagles: Desperado, CD3: Eagles: Live , I tag them with the original cd names, keeping the 1/3, 2/3 and 3/3 tags, and use the Grouping to tag all cd’s within the set as ‘Eagles Box Set’, thus keeping them together".

    Select all the tracks, get info from all, and make them part of a compilation.
    There you can make the details for each disc.
