    iTunes sorts my music:
    Artist > Alphabetical Album > Track order

    Abbey Road (1969) is the first Beatles album listed. It comes before Please Please Me (1963).

    When I scroll to the Beatles section, I want the albums to appear in chronological order.
    Artist > Chronological album > Track order

    Is there a way to do this?

    btw: The Beatles situation is just an example, this is how all my library is organized.

    Click on the song, or multiple songs and press command (apple)+i. then go to sorting and change the sort name, i.e., Beatles 1 etc.

    Thank you, but maybe I'm doing something wrong because when I select multiple songs a "multiple item information" window opens that is different from the one that opens if you select one song. I don't see a way to get to the sorting section.:confused:

    In summary, you solved my problem and I appreciate it:); however, I do not have the patience to go through 9,000 songs individually.:eek:
    -But thanks anyway:D

    There has got to be a better way! -hopefully

    Here is a much better way to organize by YEAR

    for Chronological order simply click album at the top of itunes in the list view multiple times until it says "Album by Year"

    Also if you go to sorting tab while entire album is highlighted sort artist with "The Beatles" then it will go in order in the "T" sections so to speak
