    I just imported a bunch of CDs from Windows Media Player into iTunes and everything looks good (after cutting/pasting album artwork) except that whenever songs on the album have different artists, iTunes seems to regard this as a different album. As a result, a compilation album shows up multiple times, once for each album title/artist pairing.

    Is there a setting or something so that only one album will appear?

    Thanks ... John

    Try this - for "artist", use that track's artist, and for "album artist" use 'Various Artists'. Or, if it's one primary artist with guests, use the primary as "album artist" (i.e., "B.B. King") and include the guests as "artist" (i.e., "B.B. King & Eric Clapton"). This also comes into play if you have a single artist compilation where they are credited differently on different tracks (i.e., "Les Baxter & His Orchestra" vs. "Les Baxter"). That's how iTunes groups tracks, by looking first at the album title, then splitting by track artist unless there is a common album artist entered.
