I use a set of tools, one good for each task.
1. Rip with EAC
2. Encode with LAME
3. Tag with ID3TagIt
4. Tranfer to JBR with Drag'n'drop
5. Track changes with TreeComp

The first two are both free and the defacto standard, I would be amazed if
you got any other suggestions that offer such a level of quality for your

ID3TagIt is free, and I just happen to quite like it. Slick, reliable and

TreeComp is a freebie from the Rockbox tools archive, and will certainly do
step 4, but I think it is a bit overkill for that purpose, so I only use it
to track changes quickly

For chopping and splicing MP3s, I have found NOTHING except MP3DirectCut
which will do this task without the quality loss inherent to re-encoding.

For making playlists, I use:
EAC - make playlist during rip
ID3TagIt - make playlist during tagging
WinAmp version 2 - mixes & personal compilations

Hope that helps.
