why is itunes sorting this one artist this way?

    for every other artist in my itunes library, it sorts them alphabetically by first name. So Bradley Nowell is sorted with the B's, not the N's, Pete Yorn with the P's, not the Y's, etc, etc.
    For whatever reason this one artist i just added to my library does both! One album is filed under 'I' like it should be, the next under 'M'. i've tried retyping the names and can't figure out why it's doing this.

    here are some screen shots showing exactly what the problem is.



    the name is spelled the exact same

    and they're filed under one artist in my music folder

    doesn't make any sense. any help? thanks!

    Check the Sort fields by selecting one song at a time (come on Apple...) and making sure that if it says "The ----" you have it as "----, The"
