<?php


$artistsA = array(
"A.B. Skhy" => array("chart"=>"Camel Back","Flip"=>"Just What I
Need","Label"=>"MGM K14086","Date"=>"12/8/69"),
"Aaron Neville" => array("chart"=>"She Took You For A Ride","Flip"=>"Space
Man","Label"=>"Parlo 103","Date"="3/25/67",
"chart"=>"Tell It Like It Is","Flip"=>"Why
Worry","Label"=>"Parlo 101","Date"=>"12/3/66")
);
?>

Eventually, the output will look just like this page does now.
http://mroldies.net/Artists-A1.html

Each time a new "artist" table is created, the code will produce the
required rows and columns.
Question is, is it proper to have the key names as I show?
Or do I need to uniquely identify each key value somehow?

Then, there is the problem of linking that I do not yet understand.
My thinking is instead of linking each title, just use a button in another
column.Then that would make things easier for coding.

Why do you think you need to put it in an array at all?

Only problem will be artists of the same name, so a unique numeric key
might be better. But why don't you use a database?

If you want to stick with the arrays, you could use a single array for
all artists, sorted by name.
