Split an album of tracks into "side" playlists and auto-play them

For macOS 10.12 and later only. This script will copy a selection of tracks (presumably the tracks of a particular album) into separate user-designated "album side" playlists and place these playlists in a distinct Playlist Folder. The script will then ask to play each playlist "side" one at a time, pausing after each one until you accede to play the next one (as might occur with an actual record); optionally, can delete the Playlist Folder of "sides" when complete.

Watch the video demo below.

Action shot:

Just designate where a "side" ends with a checkmark. Each "side" will be rendered as a playlist, labeled "Side 1", "Side 2" and so on, and placed inside a Playlist Folder.
