On any album I tag with mp3Tag, I add the Artist tag but I leave the Album Artist tag blank.
However, for many (but not all) of my Various Artists compliations, Windows Media Player assigns ‘Various’ as the Album Artist tag.
This means that if I use Windows Media Player to search for songs from a particular artist, Otis Redding, for example, then the results show me those songs where Otis Redding is the main artist on the album but songs on compilations with one or two tracks from Otis Redding are not displayed.
