Appreciate the feedback. The questions are in italics, but I agree they aren't as easy to see as they could be. I just added 'Q:' before each question to see how that looks. Does that help?

Is it possible to get iTunes to group certain songs together so that in Shuffle they are always played together? Certain tracks on albums by the likes of Alan Parsons, ELO and Pink Floyd just don't work properly unless they are played together.
What I'd really like is a button (on the iPod mainly) called something like "Continue Album"... Which, when pressed in Shuffle mode, would take you out of shuffle and carry on playing the rest of the album from the current track
Shuffle's great, but sometimes albums are great too. I know there's a Shuffle Albums option, but sometimes you want to jump into albums halfway through shuffle....

It's exactly that - the last 100 most recent additions...
Check "Limit to  items selected by [most recently added]"
Or was that in answer to someone else's question?

Twice My Hard drive has failed on my mid 2007 iMac 24. Both times all my music was on my backup drive but all my FOLDERS & PLAYLIST were not return. Yesterday, (after 7 days), I finishes creating all of my iTunes filing system. I need to know the correct way of backing up & restoring my Music (11,364 Songs from records), Books (6652 Book files), Folders, & Playlists so I can restore them.
