Thanks, I took yet another look at the cdda2wav manpage and found that I
was missing the "-" argument that would allow it to output to stdout.  I

work first before dealing with an entire album...now it's onwards and
upwards :)

I thought that's what the -paranoia flag to cdda2wav did?

Thanks again,
