Why are an album's songs split into multiple albums?

Posted on Feb 22, 2014 4:46 AM, Apple Support Communities - iTunes for Mac | discussions.apple.com

I have iTunes 11.1.4 running on an iMac, OSX (10.7.5). 

When I click ALBUMS at the top of the screen, I see the album covers of my collection (the albums are ripped from my CD collection--they are not from the iTunes Store).  However, for some of the albums, the music is split into two or more album covers.  For example, if I select View Options TITLE,  my Best of the Blues album shows 7 album covers.  The 14 songs in the album are divided (unevenly) amongst the 7 album covers.  Why aren't they all in one album?  I tried View Options ARTIST then TITLE and the same thing happens.  Please help.  Thanks.

Will I be charged extra for pre-ordering an album that has already released a few songs?

Posted on Jan 25, 2014 10:23 AM,

I pre-ordered an album for $18, and the album already had a few songs released on it. It seems that I received these songs instantly, but I also paid for them separately, which as most know, is more expensive than buying a full album. Does this mean that an additional $18 will be deducted from...
