Album Artist Sorting

Post by chigaimaro » Fri Aug 15, 2014 7:17 pm

Does anyone know how to sort by Album Artist on this app? the MediaMonkey app recognizes the tag because it appears in the properties, but I can't find the options to sort by album artist. This is a problem because all the compilation albums are broken up.

Thanks for any help

Hem, actually asking for your help:
What exactly is "Album artist"? What is the difference w/ "Artist"? :oops:

The Album Artist the Artist the Album belongs to, Artist is the Artist performing the particular track.

So for compilation albums such as "The best of the 60's", etc; Album Artist should be blank, correct?

Is there a tag available for the name of the (graphic) artist that created the artwork for the Album's cover?

No, it would be something like Various or Various Artists.

No, but you can add that into the description for the Artwork.
