Using multi CD albums of the same name, although I've distinguished which set of songs are in which of the three albums, I still get them compiling as one album, here:

How can I remedy the situation?

That's a sorting issue. Open Preferences (Ctrl+P) and go to Shell Integration. In the box labeled Sort incoming files by:, paste the following (you can omit the dashes if you want) or something similar:

CODE
%album artist% - %date% - %album% - %discnumber% - %tracknumber% - %title%

There's another box with the same label located under Display > Columns UI > Filter tab that you'll probably want to enter that title formatting into as well.

Do your files have DISCNUMBER tags to begin with?

That's about as far as I've gotten with telling foobar there's more than one CD.

go to preferences playlist/coloumns UI/playlist view/ then switch to grouping tab and use the desired TF to group according to the discnumber tag
something like this
CODE
%album% [Disc: %discnumber%]

^That isn't necessary to get the files to sort correctly.

Have you tried reloading the playlist or reloading the metadata from those files?

No need to apologize. OP could certainly do what you suggested if he wanted the discs grouped separately, but there is no guarantee that the files would be sorted correctly.
