Currently Being ModeratedJul 26, 2008 3:35 PM (in response to IlMolto)Album artist allows you to group the entire album together under one artist name in the case where two or more of the songs are created to different or additional artist in the artist tag.
See this past post of mine for further details and an example...

Currently Being ModeratedJul 27, 2008 3:14 AM (in response to PT)Thank you both for your input.
The reason I ask is because I have many livesets and promo mixes by DJs on my iPod. It would be nice to have a field for "Compilation Artist" or a "Mixed By" tag for compilations or DJ mixes that feature completely different artists.
This is what I thought the "Album Artist" field was for, but what good is it when it doesn't show that info on my brand new 3 day old 80 GB iPod Classic... Instead, it tells me that there's various artists.
Anyone know a work around?Dual-core 2GHz PowerPC G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 9 GB 533 DDR2 SDRAM
