Invert to Basename strip filename


hi i'm hoping to remove a filename from a filename path

dcop amarok player path
displays
/mnt/music/Complete albums/Green Day - Unplugged/Green Day - 07 - When I Come Around.mp3

'basename "$(dcop amarok player path)"
strips the folder and displays
Green Day - 07 - When I Come Around.mp3



but i'm hoping to strip it to this for a amarok script
/mnt/music/Complete albums/Green Day - Unplugged/

and hopefully take capture just the extension also

the spaces in the directory has complicated things little for me

cp "$(dcop amarok player path)" "/mnt/music/Complete albums/Green Day - Unplugged/"0"$(dcop amarok player track)"\ -\ "$(dcop amarok player artist)"\ -\ "$(dcop amarok player title)".mp3


#copy/rename playing track in format track - artist - title.extension

Not sure to get your request, but maybe what you want is "dirname".
