I'm trying to get my head around the iTunes 11 and not be too cranky in the process.


I had an issue with things not showing up when I searched and iTunes having trouble with compliations I'd made -- perhaps something to do with the "various artists" in the "album artist" field.


Here was a recent discussion:


Now I'm having a (perhaps) related issue.


Every week I make a little mix -- I call them sixpacks.  Rather than just make a playlist I make AAC copies of the songs, edit the info so they are called "[this week's] Sixpack," I change the tracks to 6 and I add artwork.  I'm sure my behavious might indicate many phychological shortcoomings -- can you spell OCD? :-) -- but for these purposes let's stick to my technical issues.


I made this week's sixpack and it displays just fine in the song view:

And in the Playlist view:

But when I go to the album view it shows as three different albums

The first album has one song, the second two and the final three -- but of course not in track order.


When I edited the info I did not include "Various artists" in the "Album artist" filed (that worked perfectly in iTunes 10) and went to the options and indicated it was part of a compliation.


This ain't a big deal as I just won't use the Album view but my OCD and need for order have me typing this post.


Any ideas?
