I have my entire mp3 collection setup using the Artist tag for who sings the song in the file and the Band tag for who is the artist of the album and I use "Various Artists" for the band of compilations.
I noticed that iTunes uses the information in the band tag as the artist it displays for the most part. I have a few files though for with this is not the case.
within the same album for whitch i have confirmed the band is set to Various Artists, iTunes displays Various Artists from the band tag as the Artist for some and the actualy artist from the artist tag for others.
I can only assume that this is due to the way the tag was writen in some way, or that iTunes makes up it's own mind what it wants to do when. Is there a way to make it do it one way or the other all the time?
