is CDDB the only database we have to identify CDs?


I tried to rip a certain classical music album, but CDDB just doesn't seem to have any information to identify it. Are there any other databases available to us that might know it?

These are the choices built into Puddletag:

Last time I checked (a decade ago), MusicBrainz was the go-to source, and Amazon was emerging as a contender.

Too bad I apparently can't try Amarok without installing KDE, which I don't use and don't want.

Now this is strange. Looking at other rippers available in the Debian repos that can use Musicbrainz, I tried the Ripit command-line ripper. It can use cddb or musicbrainz, but seems to be set to cddb by default. Before I could figure out how to switch it to musicbrainz, I saw that it recognized my CD anyway. Well, that's great, but it makes no sense--it's a CD that my previous ripper, RipperX, didn't recognize. Doesn't that suggest the problem is not CDDB but the ripper?

And this is equally strange, except that I remember seeing it happen once before when switching from some uncooperative ripper. RipperX suddenly recognizes the CD. If it's the same problem I had once before (I think when I switched from Asunder to RipperX for the same reason), RipperX started recognizing the album only because another ripper recognized it first. I may have a problem other than a lack of information in CDDB.

Attached is a screenshot of the configuration I have for RipperX. Does anything look wrong?
