UPDATED: Random Full Albums to Playlist v1.2

If you're like me, you may occasionally prefer to listen to full albums back-to-back. Back in the day, this device assisted with doing that:

turntable changer with stack

I haven't got one of those anymore (I got rid of the five-disc CD changer, too). But I've got this script that sorta works the same way. Without having to get up to flip the stack...or even pick the records.

Random Full Albums to Playlist v1.2 will assemble a user-set number of randomly selected full albums to a playlist. And by "full album", I mean a set of music tracks with the same album name, track count, and disc number, where the number of tracks from each album is equal to the common track count.

Random Full Albums to Playlist

This latest version is a maintenance update and I added an option to run it again without re-launching if you don't like the selection. Of course, the whole point is that it's a random selection of albums, so you're kind of cheating by running it again like that.
