I dom something similar to what you ask. What I do is tar a directory and all 
it's contense EXCEPT one diectory. It goes something like this:

tar -zcf  name.tgz --exclude MP3 dirname/


I'm tarring a dir. and excluding the dir MP3 and it's files.
I'm sure you will be able to expand on this.

Use  man tar to see all the switches.
