Cover Flow has actually been running rather well for me. The only problem I have with it is that I have several songs from certain artists who have no album titles. These each show up as a separate unknown album. Anyone know a way around this?

    You have to put there album name in by rightclicking the song and hitting "Get Info"

    You might try this:

    - Set the album of those tracks to be (f.e.) "unknown" or "-"
    - Make that album a compilation
    - Set your library to list "Album by Artist", therefore click the album column header several times

    If you choose to do so, all unknown albums will appear at the end of your library in one compilation.

    There was an option to hide "Unknown Albums" and albums with less than X song and a duration below Y minutes when CoverFlow was still a stand-alone program (http://www.steelskies.com/coverflow/HomePage.html).
    It seems like Apple didn't care for these options a much as I did and they dropped them. A pity.
