How to play 1-disc of 2+ disc album? [solved]

The subject line summarizes my question: how can I play just 1 disc of a multi-disc album?

At present I have to browse disc 1, press a track to enter selection mode, choose select-all, then press Play. It’s a lot of clicking compared to simply pressing “Play” for the whole album.

(Either way, I still then need to choose “Play Now” or “Add to queue” etc - but that is fine.)

Anyway, many popular albums over the last decades have been re-released with a 2nd disc containing outtakes, unreleased music, etc. For better or worse, frequently Tidal has these remastered/specials, rather than the original album. But, typically, I just want to play the original album/disc - not all these add-ons, duplicate/alternate cuts, commentary, etc.

Unfortunately it’s much more awkward to just play/queue the primary disc, than to play the whole album.

Am I missing something? Is there an easier way to just play 1 disc?

(If not, this topic might belong more in “Feature requests” than “Support” - feel free to relocate it, if appropriate.)


you can just click on the play icon to the left of the “Disc N”, or on the entire “Disc N” text

(I guess I didn’t try hard enough: that small arrow/icon is quite hard to hit on my ipad; and when I initially tried pressing “disc n”, instead, it just displayed the disc’s tracks. Now that I know it should work, I see that it does…)

the first click selects the disc, the second click plays it
