Without cutting-&-pasting, can I have a play list that invokes ALBUM1.M3U & ALBUM2.M3U

make a playlist that has the two M3U files init, I am pretty sure that works. Alos, using DOS "copy Album1.m3u + album2.m3u newpls.m3u"

A few months ago I tried TEST.M3U which contained two lines:
It didn't work. I didn't try a "@ALBUM1.M3U" calling syntax. Frankly, I don't think the program's that flexible. Maybe it's a limitation of the .M3U format.

Use Copy and Paste, its not hard. Pop them both up in Notepad and create a new one in Notepad. really easy.

When you've got say 12 Albums and you which to remove/add/alter the order that the albums play in, it's easier if you have one line to deal with then a block of lines.
Also if 2nd level calling is permitted then I can have all the album M3Us of Steve Roach in STEVEROACH.M3U and all the album M3Us of Robert Rich in ROBERTRICH.M3U and then use just AMBIENTGODS.M3U to call these two master M3Us. If another "God" comes along it would then be straightforward to add his/her master list name into AMBIENTGODS.M3U

Another option is, eg:
With ALBUM1.M3U already loaded in Winamp,
use the "Playlist Editor -> Add -> File" button to add ALBUM2.M3U
You can then edit this further by using click & drag method to rearrange the order,
or the other buttons/menus to add/remove files & ultimately save the new list, etc.
