Hi there,

is there any specific reason for ignoring TITLE and PERFORMER info when
importing CD-TEXT cuesheets into flac files? (These two fields have not
always been used but they have become widely supported by now). One may
answer that the preferred method for getting this kind of info for a
cuesheet-flac would be CDDB, but CDDB info is not always reliable.
In my opinion the goal "Now a CD can be completely backed up to a single
FLAC file for archival" has not been reached as long as this metadata is
Since there is no standardization for metadatablocks in flac files
containing multiple tracks, this information could conveniently be stored
within the integrated cuesheet, just as e.g. the ISRC fields.
