This is probably not the most efficient way to get that field in the new version but give this a try:

1. Open iTunes and select one or more tracks that you want to see the comments field.
2. Hold down the Option key while right clicking on one of the files you selected.
3. Continue holding the Option key and choose "Get Info" from the contextual menu. It also works if you choose the Get Info command in the File menu.

When the Get Info window appears it will have the Yosemite colors but contain the fields from other versions of iTunes. Click on the Details tab. The Comments field is there but you may have to scroll a bit to see it.

Comment field

Thank you for the response. When I open iTunes the comment field shows. It's when I highlight a song and click get info there is no comment field in that box.

Thanks

The comment field appears for me. iTunes says I have the current version (12.1.2). Make sure that you click the "Details" tab in the Get Info window and scroll downward if necessary.

BTW in my first post I indicated that you needed to hold down the Option key while selecting Get Info. Either that has changed recently or the tip I read was off a bit. Now I do not have to hold down the Option key to see the Comments field.

Thanks. The comment field is all the way down at the bottom. It use to be right under groupings? Any way to move back to that spot so I don't need to scroll down. I use the comment field all the time.

Sorry, Glen.

I've tried and cannot find any way of re-ordering the list of options. There may be a clever trick I've missed, but I don't think this has been possible in any iterations of iTunes.

You can enlarge the Get Info window to see all the boxes available by dragging the corners or sides.
No scrolling necessary.

I changed mine a month or 2 ago. It has maintained that size through reboots, etc. since then.

Fair point Tom, but I think the OP was looking for a way to re-order the list of options. Anyway, your suggestion certainly makes life easier, doubly so if it maintains the change.
