So I’ve started ripping some of my classical music

This is hardly a huge portion of my CDs, and it has heretofore been utterly neglected–and I’ve figured out why: it’s a real bitch to tag those tracks. The track names are all inordinately long, and no one on CDDB seems likely to have done it the way you want it, whatever way that might be.

And then you have something like the disc I have by “Elaine Funaro”: (not one of those listed) that is all her playing, but she’s doing stuff by a number of different composers.

It’s a nightmare. Because, of course, you *must* get the tagging exactly right, or better you not rip them at all–the sound’s not the point, it’s the tagging!
