    As you can see "Elephant Shell" is neatly displayed as one album. However, the sampler from Deep Elm is not. The samplers I've directly imported from CD and not online have appeared as Elephant Shell does. Is there an easy way to clean this up?

    I am using iTunes 10 on OS X 10.8.

    Thanks.

    To make an album sort together, all tracks must have identical information in the following fields:
    • Album
    • Album Artist
    • Sort Album
    • Sort Album Artist
    If you have matching information in those fields, the album will sort together. If it's not, try deleting the album from the iTunes library (keep the files), and then re-add it.

    For your sampler album, change the "Album Artist" field to "Various Artists".
