Seconded. I initially considered writing a script to rename a huge pile of
MP3 files, but halfway through, I thought, "there's *got* to be a better
way". I found this app: http://www.softpointer.com/tr.htm
Bought it the next day. Holy crap, what a gigantic timesaver. It looks up
albums based on track lengths, downloads titles from freedb and Amazon,
does ID3 tagging, renaming, moves files into separate directories... I
busted through about 20 gigs of MP3s in three days. I kid you not.
If this is just a fun toy Python project, don't let me discourage you, but
if you have more than a handful of albums to rename, trust me. This
problem has been solved.
Here's a list of apps, including Tag&Rename, that can query freedb:
