Hmm, I didn't think it worked with 3.87. But if ices -V lists LAME as
a feature, then I guess it does. I'd recommend upgrading anyway, there
were some bugs in the library which ices exercised.

-r means make a random playlist.

You want -R, which means reencode.

Also your sample rate (-H 64) will probably upset lame. Why don't you
just omit that parameter?
