But I'm sure you can find some smart solution... Apart from symlinks and "mount -o bind /d/e/f /a/b/c", I'm thinking something like:

1. create the new album /g/h/i 
2. move things from /a/b/c to /g/h/i
3. move things back from /g/h/i to /d/e/f, that before was known as /a/b/c

Maybe you already did it, but I can't know and so I'd suggest you to not put your albums in the root of the share, but to use a subdirectory, it could let you do some things in a easier way.

good luck
