Looking for the ultimate CLI id3v2 editor


In the course of last year, I have gone to the trouble of digitizing my complete CD collection to MP3, including scanning of the covers and adding the pictures to the id3v2 tags using Musicmatch (Windows).

Now that I've crossed over to linux, I would like to use the information in these tags. However, I find no good (=complete) command line utility to extract or update the already present information. The nearest I found was id3v2, but when I run it, I get the information that the tag contains an 'PRIV' tag, but I get no way to extract the info from the tag !

I can understand the tool cannot interpret the tag, but I had hoped it would at least allow a way to dump the contents as a bytestream to stdout. Similarly, I'd expect it to be possible to 'dump' a binary blob/picture in a PRIV tag.

Similarly, I'd expect a way to get and set any other possible tag.

Can anyone point me in the direction of such a tool ?
