'mp3cddb' pretends that a directory is a physical CD, calculates an ID based off that, and does a FreeDB lookup on it. Based on the information it gets, you can then pick the correct CD, edit the information, set the ID3 tags, and rename the files as you wish. There are numerous similar programs, but 'mp3cddb' has a quick and clean command-line based interface and is quite configurable. It supports gathering information from automatically calculated FreeDB DiscID, manually specified FreeDB DiscID, and ID3 tags of mp3s, ID3v1 and ID3v2 writing, manual input to blank template, and has ReadLine support for full text editing with history. It also includes a simple but powerful regular-expression based renaming engine.
