Can someone please explain what this fixation so many people have with the album is all about?

An artist may release a given song on multiple albums. They are often different performances or different masterings.

"Hotel California" by the Eagles must show up on 4-6 or more different albums representing at least 3 different performances.

A number of ZZ Topp songs have been released with vastly different remasterings on "Best of" CDs..

I've seen seemingly innumerable redited/rap versions of some Motown songs.

There may be distinct different versions by the same artist(s) for: studio, live, radio, 45 single, dance, audiophile, and different sampling/editing/rap versions.

With Classical, the same title can show up by different conductors, orchestras, venues, and as played at different festivals.

My song folder structure is:

Ripping session\artist\title\song name-track.
