I thought this had been solved; but in 6.5.1 I now have found that I have
four different Albums merged under the name name, 'Greatest Hits' - with no
separate listing of the Artists under Artists either. Any ideas how to
separate them?

The files need to be in seperate folders for each album. Otherwise SS treats them as compilation (same album name, different artists). Check to see if the album is listed under Artists - Various artists.
I have three albums called The Antidote by three different artists and they are listed correctly (with SS 6.5.0 though)

Perhaps not a purist solution but FWIW I got really fed up with seeing several albums called "Greatest Hits" in the album list, so renamed them all "Greatest Hits - <whoever>".

More usable and completely avoids this problem!

They are definitely in separate folders...

If you have "Show artist with album" enabled in Server Settings - Formatting this shouldn't be necessary.

Is there a "Greatest Hits" entry under Artists - Various artists?
If there is one you might have those files tagged with COMPILATION=1.
