There is a dedicated tool for this which you can apply to
the resulting MP3 files: install the id3tool package and
use the program "id3tool":
id3tool [<options>] <filename>
-t, --set-title=WORD Sets the title to WORD
-a, --set-album=WORD Sets the album to WORD
-r, --set-artist=WORD Sets the artist to WORD
-y, --set-year=YEAR Sets the year to YEAR [4 digits]
-n, --set-note=WORD Sets the note to WORD
-g, --set-genre=INT Sets the genre code to INT
-G, --set-genre-word=WORD Sets the genre to WORD
-c, --set-track=INT Sets the track number to INT
-l, --genre-list Shows the Genre's and their codes
-v, --version Displays the version
-h, --help Displays this message
With this tool (and the artist / album / track / title information
present, you can get "the best of both worlds", i. e., a directory
and filesystem structure as well as ID3 tags for the individual MP3
