    So I recently uploaded a Grateful Dead CD to my iTunes match....****'s Picks Vol 9.

    And tonight I was looking at the artist list and I had a couple of "Grateful Dead" entries. One of them actually had a picture of Bob Dylan.

    Weird. I go into the artist and then I see the correct artwork picture associated with 1 song from that CD (all others listed correctly).

    The "get info" all looks right. No odd other composer or info that could be confusing things that I could see.

    I DLed the song locally and then deleted from iCloud. I then looked in the file and all looked ok. I then uploaded the song back to iTunes Match.

    No luck, it still shows things wrong.

    This is very frustrating as it spoils album playback as the song(s) are not where they should be.

    Any ideas.

    I know this was originally a Dylan song, right. But there's no field I can see in iTunes that lists him....not even the composer field. I wonder if I need to get a program or utility that can deep dive into the ID3 tags and see if there is something in there. Of course, it could be an error on Apple's part......

    I created an MP3 version of the song in iTunes and then opened it in audacity. I selected the Edit MetaData function in audacity and saw nothing wrong in there.....

    Dang Apple, it must be your error. WTH!?!?!

    And it is a Dylan cover....LOL....

    Part of me wants to trash Match but I like having it for my Apple TV. When I upgrade to a 6 or whatever in 16 months, if I can swing it, maybe I buy the 128gb phone and then I can have everything right on the phone! Then Match isn't necessary. And I also backup my library to an external HD every couple of months anyways......

    And I can use home sharing to push music thru my apple TV or use an input cord for the phone right into my receiver......
