Yes, mea culpa! I had not got the tainted repo enabled. Now it's
working perfectly. Bells and whistles programs can be useful, but
sometimes a do-a-single-job application is preferred :-)

Actually, in this case, no. You have to "buy" it from their shop, for
legal reasons, but the invoice price is £0.00. It just satisfies the
requirements of mp3 on distros that are fanatical in their refusal to
provide the necessary.
I installed their package before I realised what my problem was -
probably didn't need it.
