Winamp has no control over the Gracenote database. You will never get what you are asking for in an "automated" way as it will not work as you expect. Gracenote is based around the CD disk the tracks came from. I don't know how the algorithms work, but I do know they also take the track name and number into account and the other tracks selected with it.

(Also, as you note, compilations often have different edited tracks. And sometimes a track gets released on more than one album.)

What I think you need to do is turn on your "Album Artist" columns in the Media Library. This will then show the information you require.

And it does not take that much work to adjust any titles you need as you are ripping your disks. (Unless you are sitting there with a heap of P2P sourced chaos...)
