I really like the random artist feature where you get to play random songs by one artist. However, the artist selection also appears to be random, so for example, if you want to listen to a random selection of Bob Dylan songs, you have to keep pressing the random artist selection until Bob Dylan is selected "at random".

Is there any way to select random songs by a specific artist?

Go to the artist's menu/list and press play on that artist. All of his
albums and songs will be added to the current playlist. Now hit the
"Shuffle" button on the remote or the web interface to get a random order.

This was the original way of playing random playlists. But as it can get
pretty slow with large libraries the Random Play plugin is the preferred
way to do this. But if it's for one artist only, that method is ok
(although I guess you can have hundreds or thousands of songs by one
artist, if you're a fan :-)).
