Easily combine multiple disc albums in iTunes
Authored by: WaltFrench on Jun 30, '04 11:06:50AM

It takes but a few keystrokes to create a playlist from each multi-disc album that I load into iTunes. Playlists are easy to manipulate and edit, so if the 2nd disk of your favorite oldie opera includes some unrelated arias, you can easily excise them, or create a separate phantom "album" while you're at it.

Dunno why one wouldn't prefer playlists to albums... dead easy to access, control over naming conventions (such as all Miles' albums starting with "Davis-...") without trashing any original data.

the only reason i prefer albums to playlists is that playlists takeup space on the right pane so a playlist per album, or even multiple albums (i have over 300 cd's probably 20 or 30 are multi-cd), makes that section hard to navigate.

If they had the ability to group playlists in sub-folders, I'd be allover this.
