Properly sort 'Album by Year' in iTunes and devices
Authored by: Lrwebb on Apr 23, '12 10:07:18AM

I know this thread is a couple of years old but I just wanted to thank josh and Dave for making this script.

I've been looking for a script like this for ages and this does just the job I was looking for. Almost. In fact, I've set about making a couple of edits for it to fit my requirements more exactly.

One, I always set the sort artist tag to last name, first name so I want the artist in the sort album tag to reflect this. I am a scripting novice but I've just managed to get that one to work.

Two, I would like to check to see if this track is part of a compilation. If true, then set artist to Various Artists. Perhaps even preceed that with some char to force compilations to the bottom of the albums list.

Thanks again guys.

So post your modified version then! We want to see what fixes you made.

I agree though, the script is excellent. Thanks to Dave for his modified script.
