cceverett is on a distinguished road

Here is the situation. I have imported the Garden State Soundtrack into iTunes 8. I am using the artist of the song in the Artist field, and using "various" for the Album Artist field. This way it shows as a single album when viewing Albums or Coverflow. But if i want to view by artist, it uses the album artist field and only shows "various" and not the artist who performs the song. Is there a way to sort soundtracks by Artist (not Album Artist) so that each artist that performs on the soundtrack will show up individually when viewing by artist.

Sorry if this is confusing. Please let me know and I can try and explain more fully if need.

Thanks for your help.
