Not so smart playlists?

I have a problem when I create a smart playlist using simple directions:

My rating is greater than 3 +
Limit to 25 songs selected by least recently played.

Now, what happens is that i get a whole heap of one particular artist or all tunes from a particular album. Is it possible for it to only choose say two songs from each artist that fits the critera, or no more than 2 songs from one particular artist? I run this using the random option as well, but when most of the songs on the playlist are from the same source it doesn't help

Any thoughts?

I suggest the following: Change the limit to a high number, like 1000. Then, instead of using this playlist, use the Party Shuffle and set this playlist as its source. It might mix things up a bit more.

This is a good job for applescript. Doug recently posted a similar script which listed one song for each artist "Gather Up the One-Hits".
