    Why does iTunes split my soundtrack and various artist compilation albums into multiple album entries? For example, I have an album called Duets and each song appears as a separate album. The same is true for broadway show albums and many others. I would understand the split in artists view, but not in album view.

    Also, is there any way to directly paste album art once I've copied it from another source?

    Thanks for your insight!

    Not sure why this happens sometimes but you can highlight all the songs in an album, hit Get Info, and change all the Album names to match and paste the album artwork in.

    Usually they appear seperately because a Soundtrack or Compilation album has the songs listed by the appropriate but different artists. You can work around this by using the Album Artist tag or even easier by using the new-to-iTunes 8 "Sort As" tab, and just tell them all to sort under one artist. This won't affect the tagging for things like Last.fm.
