Hi Paul,

I don't know what you're using for music cataloging, and I haven't searched
extensively, but I would recommend checking out Beets:

It's a command line (I know, this is 2013, right!) application that
organises mp3s, but uses various online resources to sort everything out
for you. It's pretty good, and certainly worth at least having a passing
familiarity with.
