"Various Artists" is how I've always done it but to be honest I don't like it as I look from music by Artist/Album folder structure. With a few albums I have experimented altering the artist field to include the album name hyphen artist name, which has worked better for me since I tend to look via artist first. For example the format string %album-artist% - $num(%track%,2) - %title% versus %artist% - %album% - $num(%track%,2) - %title%
