Winamp draws the information from the ID3 tags (AKA metadata).

Sorry, my apologies. There is another step that I forgot. It has been a long time since I have set up the ML, it completely left my mind (assuming I have one).
  1. Winamp Preferences via Ctrl+P
  2. Media Library > Local Library
  3. In the right hand plane click the Watch Folders tab
  4. Click the 'Add Folder' button
  5. Navigate to the folder containing your audio files
  6. Select the folder and click the 'Add' button
    repeat steps 4-6 to add other folders
  7. Click the 'Rescan now' button
  8. Close out of Preferences

In the ML double clicking on 'Local Library' to collapse and expand the branch. It not a necessary step, but it does help to update the Local Library views. Another way is to click one of the LL categories ti go back to the desired one. Now that the Local Library knows where to look, it should populate with the correct information.
