Listening to Music on the Amazon Echo

We always play music when I arrive home from work about 6 PM until 7 PM when Jeopardy comes on.  Until recently we played something from my CD collection, but we now often ask Alexa to play music for us.  Since I am a Prime Member I can millions of songs, playlists, and stations.  If I joined Amazon Music Unlimited I would have access to even more music.  Since I already pay for SiriusXM, I just don't want to join any other subscription music service.

I am a little confused as to what I can get as a Prime Member.  Tonight, I said "Alexa, play the Moody Blues."  It played Nights in White Satin and then just stopped.  Likewise, I said "Alexa, play the Dave Clark 5 and it played Chiquita which was the B side of Bits and Pieces which I hadn't heard in 50 years.  But, it didn't play anymore from the group. When I did ask to hear Billy Joel there were several songs available.

Go figure.
