Access to Your Music Collection in Titanium with SlidingAlbums
Many people have moved on from the basic Windows Mobile UI to more complex, feature rich launchers and home screens. However, due to its versatility, there are many people who still use Titanium as their primary UI. To help these users make the best out of their UIs, XDA member AndrewSpec released SlidingAlbum, which basically organizes your music collection and makes it available to you directly from Titanium, without making you travel through menus in a player.
Make sure you read the instructions fully as there is a specific format for the storage of your music files. If this is not followed, the panel will not recognize the file you wish to play.

You can find more information in the application thread.
