I have a CD which isn't in the CDDB database, but which has cdtext information. I used Abcde with abcde -1 to create a whole-disc FLAC file plus cuesheet (for archiving), and now later want to split it into individual compressed files to use on my phone.

The first step works fine, and creates a cue file including track information. However, when I use abcde -d myalbum.flac, I get the response that there is no CDDB info. Is there a way to tell it to just read from the cue file?

This same basic problem crops up when the CD has extended parts not ripped into the FLAC file — data tracks, for example — because the CDDB info doesn't match. But the cue file is right there — can the program be told or tricked into reading the info from there?
