I am using a semi-fresh build of emacs master on i686-pc-linux-gnu. This is a 
bug report concerning mpc.el. I have not modifier mpc.el or its variables so 

When selecting an album in the "Albums | Playlists"-view (upper right corner), 
mpc.el issues a find command regarding Albums and Playlists
E.g. for an Album called 2001:

Send "(find Album 2001)"
Receive "file: dr. dre - 2001/Dr. Dre - Lolo.mp3
        Time: 42
        Artist: Dr. Dre
        Title: Lolo
        file: dr. dre - 2001/Dr. Dre - Bang Bang.mp3
        Time: 222
        Artist: Dr. Dre
        Title: Bang Bang
        Album: 2001
        Track: 21
        Genre: Hip-Hop
Send "(listplaylistinfo 2001)"
Receive "ACK address@hidden {listplaylistinfo} No such playlist

mpc--proc-filter regards "ACK address@hidden {listplaylistinfo} No such 
playlist" to be an error and signals an mpc-proc-error.
In mpc-cmd-find (mpc.el:599) the mpc-proc-cmd that issues that 
listplaylistinfo-request explicitly ignores any error by wrapping the 
invocation in a condition-case with a nil error handler.
Unfortunately this does not work. As the error is signaled by a process filter, 
emacs itself issues an error in process.c . That means, the signal never 
escapes the process filter. This leads to an ugly error output and the album 
selection does not work at all.

I think this is a bug.
