I was thinking the same on both counts.  It might be worth a try, even
if it is just for the last track that I couldn't rip, but it probably
won't work.  At least I still have the old mp3 rip I did years ago.  I
might have an Apple Lossless rip lying somewhere, maybe I can convert
that to flac... but that's a different topic...
