Force the playback of an album from the beginning with post /select

I started playing with the soundtouch control api, and I realized while using with the /select api, that the streaming sources such as Deezer albums (or playlists) are resumed, and are not restarted.

Is it possible to force the playback of a playlist, or an album, from the beginning ? 

Is it possible to select a specific track number to start the playback from ?

Example of ContentItem xml object posted to /select:

    Hi goupnorth,

    Unfortunately, neither of these actions are possible via API today. One thing to note is that only 10 ContentItems have a saved state by the system, so for example if you started an album or playlist via /select, then played 10 other different ContentItems, the original one would start from the beginning again. This isn't really a practical workaround, but wanted to share the information.

    We'll keep both these requests in mind for future potential API improvements,

    Ok thanks.
    I'll see what I can do with that.
