    I'd like the following feature implemented (for the iPod, too):
    When a song is highlighted in any playlist, ctrl-click/right-click on it and get the option to
    "Show this album" or
    "Show all of this artist"

    That'd be great! It happens to me so often that I come across a song while playing in shuffle mode and want to listen to more of the same album/artist.

    I'm not the only one with that idea, am I? :eek:

    leave feedback on apple's support site. hopefully if enough people chime in the feature will be implemented. although its lacking some features that many of us have wanted for a while now. such as gapless playback. etc.

    Option click on the iTMS link and you'll be taken to that artist/album in your Library.

    I just sort my library by artist and then on shuffle when I hit a song it's right by all the other songs by the artist..? :confused:

    Yes, and get the small hack that "reverses" iTunes Music Store links (so that single-clicking on them shows the artist in your library, and option-clicking uses the iTMS), since it's a lot more efficient.

    Been using this hack for months :D Good stuff, and a wonderful feature.

    :) :) :)
    O THANK YOU, Applespider!!!
    That's exactly what I wanted! - I had turned off those iTMS-links :rolleyes:

    Is there something similar on the iPod as well?

    Thanks again,

    To do this, open Terminal and write:

    defaults write com.apple.iTunes invertStoreLinks -bool YES

    (NO to get it back).

    I'm so happy I could cry (mind the hyperbole...)

    Thank you all for this very quick and fruitful help :)
