search returns same result each time

Firstly - apologies for this being a real newbie question/problem: been banging my head against this for so long I can't see what's what. I have two pages - one lists a group of artists pulled from a MySQL db table. That bit works fine. What I'm trying to do is have these click through to the appropriate detail in the db, but what's happening each time is that the same record (the first in the table) gets returned. The first page is pre-test.php and the code is as follows:

-------------------------
<?php require_once('Connections/album.php'); ?><?php
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
{
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
break;
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . doubleval($theValue) . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "defined":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
break;
}
return $theValue;
}
}

mysql_select_db($database_album, $album);
$query_rsListing = "SELECT * FROM albumlist";
$rsListing = mysql_query($query_rsListing, $album) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rsListing = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsListing);
$totalRows_rsListing = mysql_num_rows($rsListing);
$query_rsListing = "SELECT artist FROM albumlist";
$rsListing = mysql_query($query_rsListing, $album) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rsListing = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsListing);
$totalRows_rsListing = mysql_num_rows($rsListing);
?><?php
// RepeatSelectionCounter_1 Initialization
$RepeatSelectionCounter_1 = 0;
$RepeatSelectionCounterBasedLooping_1 = false;
$RepeatSelectionCounter_1_Iterations = "4";
?>

and the "results" page is called test.php and the code for this is as follows:

function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")

It's probably glaringly obvious to anyone what I'm doing wrong here but for the life of me I can't see it. Any assistance appreciated... thanks in advance.
