    Coverflow on iPhone vs. iPod
    I recently got an iPhone, and was using an iPod before that. I mostly listen to classical music, and I had all my music on my iPod's coverflow sorted a certain way. Here's an example of how I would tag 6 tracks on a particular CD that has a violin concerto from Brahms and Tchaikovsky
    Track 1-3:
    Composer: Tchaikovsky
    Album: Brahms, Tchaikovsky: Violin Concertos
    Artist: Tchaikovsky, Milstein, Fistolari, Philharmonia Orchestra

    Track 4-6:
    Composer: Brahms
    Album: Brahms, Tchaikovsky: Violin Concertos
    Artist: Brahms, Milstein, Steinberg, Pittsburg SO

    So the ablum is the same, and I have all 6 tracks as "part of a compilation."

    Now, on my iPod's coverflow, it would sort by ALBUM. So it would display the CD artwork, then underneath the Album title, and underneath that it would say "Various Artists." So:
    CD Cover
    Brahms, Tchaikovsky: Violin Concertos
    Various Artists

    I transferred all my iPod's music to my iPhone recently, and I was very surprised to see the coverflow is sorted a different way. Now, the same CD under coverflow displays:

    CD cover
    Tchaikovsky, Milsteinn, Fistoulari, Philharmonia Orch
    Album Title (Brahms, Tchaikovsky: Violin Concertos)

    So now the coverflow looks like it's sorted by ARTIST on the iPhone. Also, even though this CD has two different artists, it groups them together (probably because I selected part of a compilation) but does not say "Various Artists."

    So, my question is, how do I sort the coverflow on the iPhone the same way as on my iPod? I.e., by album and not by artist?
