    Personally I wouldn't trust any app to do such a task reliably. There's too much risk of it deleting the wrong songs. I'd audition the duplicates manually within iTunes. Go to File -> Show Duplicates, and delete the songs you don't want.

    No software will do that. One reason is both a studio and live version could have exactly the same name and be the same length. iTunes matches based on song name and artist name. There are many other reasons not to get rid of duplicates, such as if you want to keep complete albums, where a song appears on both. Or a song is re-released in a different style, such as acoustic. Deleting dupes is best done manually.

    There aren't any apps that match Track Number, Title, Artist AND album?

    Search dougscripts for any of the duplicate track deletion files.
