Linking bonus tracks to the correct releases?

My copy of the album Debut by Björk has an extra track called "Play Dead". This track is not shown in the track list of the album overview page for Debut, which is probably correct for the standard release.

I found the extra track when I navigated to the Debut [Bonus Track] entry of the "RELEASES" tab, which again is also correct.

Then I searched the "SONGS" tab from the main Björk page and found the song "Play Dead" (not easily as there are no sort/filter options). Clicking on the song it took me to an "appears on" list which only has the standard release (without the extra track) listed. The old site shows the various releases containing the extra track on the "appears on" list.

Hope that makes sense?

That is strange.

I see it here:
http://beta.allmusic.com/song/play-de...

but that page is not available via any of the "Play Dead" versions on her Songs page.

We'll look into it.

Out of curiosity, if you could have filtered that All Songs page, how would you have liked to do it? What would have been a useful Sort function (besides the fact that it is already in alphabetical order)?

I was searching the songs in the HIGHLIGHTS tab (not the ALL SONGS tab) and there is a random selection of songs that are not in alphabetic order. That's why I had the search problem and I found it by using the browser's own find functionality - CTRL+F. If you click on "Play Dead" from the HIGHLIGHTS tab it shows the page you hyperlinked above.

I have just tried using the "ALL SONGS" tab and although it is now in alphabetic order, and songs are easier to find, there are three entries for "Play Dead" and none of them give the correct result.

Off the top of my head, a filter possibly that looks like:
# A B C D.........................Z
at the top of the list, each letter hyperlinked to reposition the list at that letter.???
