Unfortunately this didn't seem to work. I get the same warning (error?)
as before when pointing to a directory.
$ abcde -d Unknown\ Artist -a embedalbumart
[WARNING] something went wrong while querying the CD... Maybe a DATA CD or the CD is not loaded?
[WARNING] Error trying to calculate disc ids without lead-out information.
which from the abcde code seems to be caused by cdparanoia failing.
If I point to a file instead, then I get a different error.
$ abcde -d Unknown\ Artist/Unknown\ Album/01\ Track\ 1.flac -a embedalbumart
[ERROR] abcde: the input flac file does not contain a cuesheet.
Skimming the abcde code, I'm not entirely sure what the code is doing

Ah okay. I wonder if it's possible to hack where abcde looks, and put
the new disc information in there. As per my first post, if I modify the
CDDB data during interactive mode, abcde is fine, so presumably at worst
I can hack the code to continue from that point after the batch rip.
