Question Concerning Re-Tagging MP3 Tags -- Optimal Solution Requested


I solved the problem "the hard way" and I was wondering what the optimal solution should have been.

The problem was that I had made an error on a DISCOGRAPHY of an artist (Janis Joplin) such that the title had included the track number. My "hard way" solution was to go through every entry in EasyTag and fix them all manually.

Can you please tell me a better way?

Note: I had a stroke and a brain damaged, so just telling me the CLI application is of little use. I looked at the man page on id3, id3ren, and id3tools, but I couldn't figure out how to do it, but I am certain it would involve "find" and "id3*" in some way.

Thank you for any suggestions you may make!

While I have not used it myself, see this; https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...7/#post5699732

I have used Audacity though, which can also can change them. Sorry to hear about your stroke.

I always use this tool (Puddletag) for tagging music files. It's a GUI tool very similar to mp3tag in the Windows world and allows you to operate on individual or a group of files in many different ways.

Definitely worth a look ...

Cheers !

You are most welcome, Kevin. jsbjsb001 suggested it before I did, though - I was just adding my recommendation based on extensive personal use.

Hope Puddletag addresses your needs - don't hesitate to drop back in for any other questions.

Cheers !
