Q.  How can I view/change mp3 id3 tags on my Linux command line?

A.  The package `tagtool` has a bunch of command line programs for this.

dnf install tagtool
Now you can do:
id3info *.mp3
to see info. To set tags:
id3tag -A 'Dark side of the Moon' *.mp3
See `man id3tag` for more info. Other commands are: `id3convert` and `id3cp`
