    I have 13 albums of an artist.
    In iTunes 10.6.3 I put the dates released at the start of most of the albums. Some are compilation albums - so no date.
    iTunes sorts these into date order:
    Anthology
    Great Moments with Pharoah Sanders
    The Impulse Story
    1971 Black Unity
    1971 Live at the East
    1971-73 Village of the Pharoahs
    1972 Wisdom Through Music
    1980 Journey to the One
    1982 Heart is a Melody
    1987 A Prayer Before Dawn
    1987 Africa
    1989 Moon Child
    1992 Crescent with Love


    I have synced these to my iPod Touch (5.1.1) but only some of the dates are shown:
    Anthology
    Great Moments with Pharoah Sanders
    The Impulse Story
    Black Unity
    Live at the East
    1971-73 Village of the Pharoahs
    1972 Wisdom Through Music
    Journey to the One
    Heart is a Melody
    1987 A Prayer Before Dawn
    Africa
    1989 Moon Child
    Crescent with Love



    I tried copying the album names from iTunes and pasting them into Pages to display the invisibles e.g spaces. There seems to be no difference between them - just one space between the date and the rest of the title, and no spaces spaces at the start.

    Any ideas what's causing this?
    Thanks for your help.

    More info:

    When the iPod is attached to the computer, all the dates are displayed correctly in iTunes/DEVICES/Music.

    SOLVED - Not sure exactly why.

    I deleted one title - 1992 Crescent with Love, and retyped it.
    I then resynced my iPod.

    All the album titles are now displayed correctly.
    Very strange!
