iTunes sorts files (internally) based on Artist, specifically Album Artist, then Album.

So, if you have a sampler album (let's say) where the artists are all different, you need to a) make sure the album name is consistent and b) use something like "Various" or "Frank Sinatra and Friends" as the Album Artist. Only THEN can the "Artist" tag be whatever the artist actually is and yet the songs will "stick together."
