Thanks for your response. I am almost certain that the check box 
toggle were independent. I seem to recall having our "Christmas" song 
highlighted/checked/selected in the respective Playlist and the 
"Christmas" songs did not play when I used the master library because 
I was able to 'uncheck' them.   (or maybe I'm just loosing y mind). 
Thanks for your response.
