One solution for an iTunes 7.3 customized sort field issue
Authored by: MacMuse26 on Jul 11, '07 08:05:36AM

The 'Get Info' walk basically forces iTunes to re-read the tags in the actual song file instead of just showing you the subset of tags stored in the iTunes Library file. Those library tags appear to have been abused during the 7.3 upgrade and resulted in your odd sort behaviour.

For anyone else with the problem, try this method of achieving the same result of forcing iTunes to read the tags from the song file.

• Turn on show artwork
• Click it's banner so it show "selected song"
• highlight the first entry in your library and hold the down arrow until you get to the bottom.

The album artwork is not stored in the library database, so this also forces iTunes to read to the original files. It will take a while for a large library, but you can just drop a brick on the down arrow key and let it finish unattended.

CAVEAT: I'm not experiencing the original issue, so I don't know for certain that this technique achieves the same result.
