The Holmboe string quartets box fails to have any track listings or information on the individual sleeves or the actual discs, beyond a CD number. All of the details you have to find in the booklet.

The 2 Nielsen boxes I have do not suffer the same problem.

Are you you using a freeware ripping application that retrieves track info from a free server? I’d so, you might try iTunes, which will access the real gracenote database.

Um... I’m playing the CDs and literally talking about the CD covers and the booklet. Everything I said was clearly about physical objects. Why does ripping come into it?
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

Had a dream that I was thinking about buying the Complete Beethoven Naxos box and looked down at the floor and there it was!

This may be what they call a "sign".
