Display two album art images for any one iTunes song Apps
The Now Playing image area in the lower left corner of iTunes' interface will display whatever artwork is contained in a song file, even if the album artwork is different. This can be useful if you happen to have a scan of the back of a CD, or some other second image you want associated with an album or a particular song:
  1. Add the secondary artwork to a song in iTunes (through Get Info)
  2. Get Album Art for the song
Now when you play the song, the main album art display (CoverFlow) will show the artwork from the iTunes store, while the Now Playing image will show the artwork associated with the track.

Display two album art images for any one iTunes song

That's probably a bug. Would be nice if iTunes automatically cycled through the available artwork.

I don't think this is a bug. I remember encountering this behavior (more than one album cover) in iTunes 5 when I was manually adding cover art.

It's a feature!

Actually I have no idea whether it's a feature or a bug but I prefer to hope it's a feature. Incidentally an iPod will always display the song-specific artwork if it exists, the album artwork otherwise.

I think this *feature* should be extended further--I recently bought some old LPs and CDs and was reminded of all that nice packaging artwork one used to get with music. Now that artwork is being added via linking in iTunes rather than necessarily getting embedded in every single fiile, it would be great to be able to link to multiple artwork files & get the full media package with music store purchases.
