Problems with Albumartist and mbid tags (Why is Kodi so unpredictable....)
#1
Music 
Kodi 15.2
Ubuntu/Linux - QTS 4.2.0

This issue is about how Kodi interprets the content of my Music library.

An example;
I have 9 albums with The Bee Gees organized as; Music/AlbumArtist/Year - AlbumName/Track - Songname.mp3

All 9 albums are tagged exactly the same way using ID3 only:
AlbumArtist= The Bee Gees
Artist = The Bee Gees

Still, Kodi has made up its mind to split the 9 albums in two groups;
5 of them are listed under Artist; The Bee Gees
The remaining 4 are listed under Artist; Bee Gees

The latter 4 albums all have nice Fanart while the first 5 albums has no fanart!

Why is Kodi "inventing" a band name Bee Gees without the article 'The' ?
Not a single place in my library do I have a song or an album where I did not use the whole name including the article "The"
I have checked and doublechecked, and all 4 albums listed in Kodi without 'The' are tagged properly with 'The'

These things makes it very hard to stay on friendly terms with Kodi. At least until I understand why it does these things.
Any assistance is appreciated
