    I don't think I've ever used those characters before.

    My music server can sort albums by the date tag field, so even without Album Sort tags (or date being included in Album field), I can see my albums sorted chronologically. A nice feature.

    And that is why we have the luxury of using software like this to manage our own libraries, instead of using some online database that doesn't work for any of us!

    Exactly, GBrown. I would never trust such garbage!

    But we don't want to see compilations sorted by date do we, we want to see those in alphabetical order.

    Code:
    2005 - The Complete Motown Singles, Volume 1: 1959-1961
    2005 - The Complete Motown Singles, Volume 2: 1962
    2005 - The Complete Motown Singles, Volume 3: 1963
    2006 - Now That's What I Call Music! 63
    2006 - Now That's What I Call Music! 64
    2006 - Now That's What I Call Music! 65
    2006 - The Complete Motown Singles, Volume 4: 1964
    2006 - The Complete Motown Singles, Volume 5: 1965
    2006 - The Complete Motown Singles, Volume 6: 1966
    It's just about possible with my music server without requiring any tag changes (with a little coding).

    Asset R7 (which I use) can too, but when you go OCD you still need ALBUM SORT for full date sorting rather than just year (e.g. some Beatles & Rolling Stones albums were from the same year). And when you really go full OCD you want to add the remaster date as a suffix in ALBUM SORT, just for the sake of completeness... Did I say I have OCD? Nah, don't think so, was merely pointing out various possibilities haha...

    I use ALBUM SORT for that too. I sort compilations alphabetically and regular albums chronologically, but I almost never list them together so not a problem with the different sorting criteria.
