No, this is not what I want to do. I do not *always* wan't to select an 
album to begin with. Changing this in setup as you describes means that 
I always have to choose the album to begin with.

Never used one of those, but I think you are getting my point :-)

This is exactly what I want! Sometimes I feel like listening to 
Metallica, sometimes I like to listen to Jackie Brown Soundtrack which I 
don't even know the artists names for any song on the album (hence the 
need to select album at 1st level). And sometimes, I'd like just a 
random selection of pop music.
