This is very similar to my situation. I go to "Library" then "artist" (or any selection actually) and click and hold so I can select the option to play everything by that artist or genre etc. However, only the first song plays and then it reverts back to my entire song list. Driving me a bit mad this morning. :-( So, I figured I'd beat it and select everything by an artist and place it in a new playlist. Then I select that playlist to play and yet again, it only plays the first song then reverts to my entire song list. grrrrr. HELP! ps. I've tried your suggestions with shuffle...no joy.
