    Ah ha!  I finally got it.  In order to label it this way I had to
force the use of id3v2 for mp3 (it's much easier in ogg).  Since I'm
using lame to encode I had to use the id3v2 options.  I have replaced
the file with one that is labeled (hopefully) correctly.  All this legal
stuff is really strange - all I wanted to do was post a song ;-)  Oh
well, you live and learn.  BTW, even though I couldn't use the stuff on
the above pages, the links were invaluable.  Thanks Conrad.

Pennsylvania for his "Pennsylvania Fireplace", c. 1744
