The problem is that Amazon is pretty full of chaff, ie multiple copies
of the same album with various [IMPORT], [PRE-RELEASE VERSION 1.ze]
tragged onto the names, with various different combinations of image/no-
image. You'd have to do some messing around to return a sane list. A
good starting place would be the Amazon code in Muine ( That does some stripping and %-based matching
to try and get the right album. One thing it doesn't do (And probably
should) is keep re-trying if the first match it finds has no image.
