Properly sort 'Album by Year' in iTunes and devices
Authored by: le_nombril on Mar 31, '10 10:33:00AM

I found both downside and solution:
- The number of albums in the column browser is in fact the number of distinct years, the label being the last album of the that year in alphabetical order and filtering using this column filters on all albums released that year
- The solution is to concatenate year and album title in the Album sort field

Bonus hint: If a band released several album the same year, I add a letter after the year so alphabetical sort is correct (1985a<AlbumName>, 1985b<AlbumName>, etc...)
