    Is there a way to generate a list your iTunes album?
    Just the album names
    For instance I have 66 audio books
    Printing the album art isn't an option.
    The problem is even worse for my music albums.

    Cmd a, to select all the albums.

    Menu bar : File / Print

    Thanks- That worked. I selected PDF then converted that to text.

    I'm sure there are easier methods, but I use Excel for things like this a lot.

    1. Open iTunes and select all your music with Command-A
    2. Command-C to copy
    3. Open a new Excel spreadsheet and Command-V to paste
    4. Delete all columns except the Album (or other desired field) column
    5. Click on the column letter heading at the top to select the whole column
    6. Data > Filter > Advanced Filter
    7. Click OK to the message about column labels
    8. List Range will already be populated from your column selection
    9. Click the icon to the right of Criteria Range, click the column letter heading, then click the icon again
    10. Check the box "Unique records only"
    11. Click OK
    12. Give it some time to process, depending on the size of your library. It took about 30 seconds for 20K songs.
    13. Click the resulting filtered column again and Command-C to copy
    14. Open a new worksheet and Command-V to paste
    15. You can now use the list of unique album names

    In iTunes, choose File|Print. Then in the first section choose to print "Album list" and choose "List of albums" in the Theme dropdown box. You'll get a list of all albums with columns for the artist, album, number of items (tracks), and total time (duration).
