What is the best way to organize music by artist with various artist...

Recommended Posts

What is the best way in iTunes 7 to organize my music by an artist who has several songs that have appearances by other artist? I now have about 400 Artist, in my artist list.

 

1-Most of them are by the same Artist but with people who appear on their album as a special guest. What is the best solution for this?

 

 

2-The same Artist appear on someone else's album what is the best solutions for this? I would like to have as few categories as possible.

 

When I have a track with 2 artist, how will iTunes handle both Artist or do I have to determine? If I choose 1 Artist, does this mean that when I search for the 2nd Artist that the track would not be found. Please help me. I want to fix my Library so I can back it up.

List the second name with the song title. It will still come up in a search but not when you click on artist names in the browser.

You could also add the second artist in the comments field, and they will also appear when searching.

I always remove the second artist. Or put it in the Comments. I can't stand browsing for an artist and having it miss a song because of a guest singer.
