Album tracks and grouping

New Winamp user here, so please bear with me.

How do I keep album tracks together? For example I ripped R.E.M. Out of Time to WinAmp and it displays 3 entries in the album list:

R.E.M.
R.E.M. Feat. Kate Pearson
R.E.M. Feat. KRS-One

This has been replicated on my HTC Desire. Is there a setting to sort this out or do I need to edit the album/track info?

Thanks in anticipation.

Darryl

So, what you need to do is set the Album Artist to REM, but leave the Track Artist alone.

'REM - Out of Time' should now appear as one entry in the album listing, while the individuals still show in the Artist listing.

What you have to do is tell the Winamp Library to display a list of album artist(s) instead of a list of artist(s). Winamp interprets that if there is no info under "album artist" for any given file, then for that file, "artist" is the album artist, so you don't have to worry about filling in info or anything.
