I agree with Kunga - I like the artist listing the way it is. But, 
people always have different needs and work in different ways and mp3 
Rage works for me, too. All told, that's what is so great about 
computers, Macs, and iTunes specifically. I've always been a music 
junkie and over the years have always wanted to create playlists 
(reel-to-reel or cassette in those days) of songs I liked but the 
effort required had always been a bit too daunting. Now I have all my 
music literally at my fingertips, I can create, classify, sort, or just 
pick a song or two from here and there without having to scrounge 
through piles of CDs (and LPs).

Since iTunes, Audion and all the other players came along, I've been in 
hog heaven!
