Howdy, I'm new to Mac but have been using iTunes for ages. My iTunes library is a complete mess!
Has anyone come across any freeware software which easily obtains music info and corrects labels, artwork etc? or any so good that they are worth buying?
Cheers!

It's not iTunes-specific, by I live by MusicBrainz. Check out the cross-platform Picard Tagger.

This won't help with tidying the files up in particular but is a good application to use afterwards to get all album artwork for your iTunes Library.

Funnily enough, I have spent some time this weekend tidying my music library. I used MusicBrainz Picard tagger for my library. The benefits of this were that it is free, it has a reasonable database (didn't trial with nz music) and is a reasonably flexible tagger. Itunes should add your album art in most cases.
