[sclug] MP3 Ogg and ID3 Tags

I use amaroK (http://amarok.kde.org/) as my media player. It has good 
collection/playlist capabilities and you can edit tags too. If you get 
it, set up your collection and then select the "All collection" smart 
playlist. Then select the tracks you want to edit and right click in the 
column that needs editing to edit more than one at a time. You can also 
fill in tags with MusicBrainz if you have the correct libraries (but 
only one of the time, and in my experience MusicBrainz is often wrong).

Hope that helps,
