You can also shift-select several tracks and edit their info all at once. Sometimes if there is a "featured" artist on a track, that will not come up with the rest of the album, and you need to edit the artist field under 'info' to be the same as the rest of the CD. Also, if yours is a compilation, checking 'compilation' will get the tracks to list correctly.
If you have a lot of songs to fix there are applications that claim to be able to analyze your whole music collection and supply missing metadata. I don't have experience with this one, Songgenie, but it got a great review in Macworld. There are probably similar programs for a PC.

Insert CD and wait for the import screen.
Highlight all songs and choose "Get Info".
Review the info (including the "option" tab).
