I have a greatest hit album, that is all done by "The Byrds", I check all of the songs info, yet when I sync to my iPhone, the album is at the bottom, under VARIOUS artists.

What can I check?

Check Get Info in iTunes (I am still running Mojave) Look to see if the Album Artist is listed as Various Artists.

I hate iTunes/Music. I've tried organizing my lists for decades and can't make it work the way I think it should in my mind. mad2 smiley

IIRC, make sure it's not a "compilation" album - get info on the album and make sure it's unchecked.

This is the answer. Uncheck this box and you should be good. About 3/4 of the way down the "Get Info" window.
