    iTunes - Display only 'real' albums
    One of the things I've always hated about letting a piece of software keep track of my mp3s is this. I just added about 20GB of MP3s to my Library (I'm giving iTunes a second chance), though some were complete albums, others were collections of separate songs, often with messed up tags, but kept together by a folder anyway.

    Now, iTunes likes to take it all very literally, and now I have more than 1000 albums, the majority only having 1 or maybe 2 songs in them. Also, I have a lot of artists: Santana, Santana ft Sting, Santana ft etc etc etc (actually, they should all be Santana. They are still in the same album, but won't be listed when I look under Santana as an artist)

    Is there a way to make it so iTunes only displays albums with more than 8 or so songs in the Album view? This would probably eliminate about 90% of my 'albums', making it much much easier to navigate. I'm not even going to ask for it to do things the way I want them to be, that would be too much to ask.

    Or does anyone have another solution that doesn't involve a lot of work? - forum for fun people

    You could corral them in to Virtual ablums using the album artist tag

    For example, those Santana tracks. If you select all your one off Santana tracks that are not part of a whole album, select get info and enter what you like in the album artists, I dunno Santana, best of

    Now the album artists tag leaves the artist tag alone so a serach for Sting will still pull up that Santana ft Sting track
