Windows Media Player organizing music

After a fresh install of Windows 7 I am noe about to put all my music onto WMP, from a USB drive. My question however is a general one; I have a CD that I compiles myself from my own cds, of about 20 tracks od different artists. Say i call this "Christmas Mix" eg; will this appear under an album called Christmas Mix in the library, or will it (as I fear) appear as 20 different albums, 1 for each artist (if you get my drift).

I have had that happen before, and tracks ending up all over the place. Is there a way to avoid this, and get it to stay just in the same folder.

Hope Im making this clear, thanks!

Wow! A lot involved there! Is it any simpler or easier or even automatic in iTunes or Winamp, Monkey Media etc?

Thanks I've managed the first collection ok! Except for adding an image/icon for the folder. Cant do it. It wont recognize the jpg image Im using as an icon. I placed it on the desktop and also in the actual Christmas Mix folder, and tried from both places but to no avail.

I remember once, WMP would simply let you "add album art". Hmm...progress?
