iTunes had put albums like "L.A. Woman" and "Led Zep IV" into the "Compliations" sub-folder of "iTunes Music". I tried to move them to the "Doors" and "Led Zeppelin" folders and re-import them into iTunes, but during the import process, iTunes moved them back into the "Compilations" folder!

Why is this happening and what can I do about it? Confused

In iTunes select the songs and select get info. Check all the tagging info is correctly filled in and also on the info tab check that the option "Part of a compilation" isn't ticked
