    It appears WMP 10 sorts "Album Artist" by First Name, Last Name. I already
    have all my music (over 5k of songs) taged, filed and sorted by Last Name,
    First Name. So why did it sort by First Name, Last Name? - First of all, i
    don't want the "Album Artist" in there at all, (how do i take it out?),
    second, (if i can't take it out) how do make WMP10 "Album Artist" sort by
    Last Name, First Name?

  2. WMP doesn't know about last name and first name. You would have to rename
    all your Album Artists to work that way.

    Removing Album Artist is not possible and would break WMP's handling of
    albums. It's the pair "Album [Title]" + "Album Artist" that uniquely
    determines each album set.
