    Does anyone know how to solve this problem shown in iTunes

    All the information in the Get Info boxes seems to be the same, same artist, same albums where related, same album artist, but they will not group together, does anyone know how to fix this?

    Have you tried editing all of the tracks at once?

    What do you mean when you say that they won't group together? It is likely an error 40.

    Could you upload a picture of the entire iTunes window? I am not sure what you are looking at here.

    Look on the left how the artists of the name, are not grouped together, even though on all of them the Artist field and Album Artist field are exactly the same

    This is a long, long, long standing bug in iTunes (back to like version 4). Select all the songs and edit the info, add a space to the end of the album name. That should group them all together.

    If that doesn't work. Delete all the songs from your library and have iTunes move them to Trash.
    Pull them out of Trash, and re-import to iTunes.
    You'll lose your playcount and song ratings if you do this, but sometimes it seems to be the only way to get iTunes to re-group things correctly.
    Album art and inclusion in playlist data should survive this.

    Caveat: I've NO IDEA what happens if you keep your songs in the cloud.
    I suspect it's something unpleasant, so be sure the tracks exist on your drive before trying this.
    A library backup might even prove a sensible precaution.
