Any reason why FB2K fails to delete "VA" from album artist ?, Quick answer: delete ITUNESCOMPILATION at the same time

I have some albums that I've tried to remove the Various Artists tag from Album Artist field - but each time I do so & apply, it reappears again !

Any ideas ?

Yes. The "1" indicates the existence of the ITUNESCOMPILATION tag. And from the WIKI article I mentioned above:

foobar2000 links the iTunes ITUNESCOMPILATION tag to the ALBUM ARTIST tag. In case an ITUNESCOMPILATION tag is found in a file, foobar2000 treats it as if ALBUM ARTIST was set to "Various Artists". If an ALBUM ARTIST tag is found, ITUNESCOMPILATION will be ignored.

This is want I meant, but I could be wrong.

This is HA. Not the Jerry Springer Show.
