Help Sort by album artist?

Hi there,
I was just wondering if it was possible to sort your music by album artist. It seems the Zen only sorts by track artist, and unfortunately, most of my music is tagged with featured artists as well as the main artists thus making navigating via track artist very difficult. If anyone knows of a way to sort by album artist, can you please reveal how you did so?

Thanks!

As far as I know, the Zen can only sort tracks by Artist (ie Track Artist) or Album or Track Title. The only way I know to get around this is to (laboriously) re-tag your music so that the featured artist is part of the track name rather than part of the artist name (eg Rodney Crowell - The Outsider - Shelter from the Storm feat. Emmylou Harris ). This gets complicated if there are are multiple artists or for collaboration albums though...
