Question on Mac Music App and Setting Meta Data in Albums, If album is called Greatest Hits
Posted by: Microman
Date: August 05, 2022 10:32AM
When I go to synch an album to my iPhone, I might have more than one album that is titled Greatest Hits And you cant tell from the choice of album what artist it is. So I have begun to rename those type of Albums to include the artist name.

Is that the way, or is there another?

That works. I tend to rename albums with the year at the beginning, to keep them in correct order as well. Sometime I add an extra space as well. Otherwise they go alphabetical.

1967<space><space>Sgt Pepper
1967<space>Magical Mystery Tour
1968<space>The Beatles (White Album)
1969<space>Abbey Road

Because Pepper came before Mystery Tour
