Other details RE the Compilation albums:

The A.B.B.A. Registers all recorded works on Compilation albums with AMCOS.
AMCOS distributes the royalties on the amount of stock the Association purchases, so the songwriters/songwriting artists performing self-penned material on the album, providing they are registered with AMCOS, will receive their royalty cheques via AMCOS.
The Association STRONGLY suggests the songwriters register their work with AMCOS (at no cost) as this can ensure receiving royalties from radio airplay and live performances.
