    Any ideas as to why these albums won't sort properly?

    Hi all.

    Here is a screen shot of a page in my Foobar2000 mobile app:

    2020-01-16 22.57.41.jpg

    As you can see, after the first couple of entries, I have two complete Ring Cycles, conducted by Furtwängler. Alphabetically, they should sort by the Milan one followed by the RAI one.

    So, alphabetically, it should go:

    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler Milan, 01...
    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler Milan, 02...
    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler Milan, 03...
    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler Milan, 04...
    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler RAI, 01...
    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler RAI, 02...
    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler RAI, 03...
    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler RAI, 04...

    This is how it sorts in iTunes, but for some reason, Foobar is putting them:

    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler Milan, 01...
    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler RAI, 01...
    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler RAI, 02...
    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler RAI, 03...
    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler RAI, 04...
    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler Milan, 02...
    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler Milan, 03...
    07-10: Ring, Furtwängler Milan, 04...

    I've posted this on the Foobar support page, but I remember when I posted here about a "Grouping" entry that started appearing in iTunes & it turned out that iTunes was interpreting the "Style" tag from dBpoweramp & sticking it in the "Grouping" column, (which was easily solved by removing the "Style" tags before ripping the CD), so I thought someone hereabouts might be able to shed some light on my current predicament.

    I can't find any other information (including sort fields) that is contained within the tags for the files so I'm a bit stuck.

    Can anyone think of anything else that might be causing these albums to sort incorrectly in the Foobar2000 Mobile App?

    Thanks.

    Perhaps there is a double space between Furtwängler RAI

    I've no doubt it will be something dumb like that, but no. No double spaces.

    In case it's of any interest/help, here are some screen grabs from the "edit tags with dBpoweramp" window...

    In the order they sort in Foobar...

    The opera that comes first (Milan): Wagner01.jpg

    The opera that comes second (RAI): Wagner02.jpg

    The opera that comes third (RAI): Wagner03.jpg

    The opera that comes sixth (Milan): Wagner04.jpg

    Of course, they sort correctly in iTunes, so I'm clueless.

    I'm gonna check the basics again.
