    He's there under 'B' I'm afraid - no way that I can see to change that behaviour.

    Thanks for checking Chill. My dream app is still an iOS app that will play FLAC files and that uses the artistsort tag. I can dream!

    Are you using a separate subset of music on your iOS device?
    If so you could always run mp3tag across the whole lot and use the Convert facility to re-tag replacing track artist with artist sort before putting it onto the phone.

    I don't use ARTISTSORT so can't show exact example but see below

    This will re-write the ARTIST tag (Amy Winehouse) to the album name (Back to Black)

    Substitute %artistsort%

    Thanks, that's similar to what I am doing now. Yes, I have a separate set of music for the phone. My hope is just that one day I won't have to go to that trouble and still be able to get the sorting and other features that I'm after.
