I download a good bit of music from eMusic, but without the benefit of their download manager , so all of the mp3's I pull from eMusic tend to end up in the same directory, which, IMHO, is not really that useful. Anyway there are a probably one hundred and one scripts and programs to sort your mp3's, but heres mine in case it might be of use to someone.... You'll need to download MP3::Tag for Perl to extract out the relevant info from your mp3 files.
[fintanr@prometheus fintanr] $ mymp3sorter -h Usage : mymp3sorter [-i input dir][-o output dir][-v][-h] Where : -i directory containing the mp3s you wish to sort -d directory to place sorted mp3s and directory structure -v verbose output -h display this helpYou can download the script here. Happy sorting.  I could use the now unsupported Linux downloader in a brandz zone if I was so inclined, but lifes just too short.
