It's been a decade or more, but I remember that Tori Amos's
Raspberry Swirl CD-single had a couple of real-media tracks
tacked onto it, which I was able to successfully extract some-
how, though I don't recall exactly how at the moment.  I also
don't have any such disc handy, but does FreeBSD still create
the individual nodes for tracks (a la /dev/cd0t1, /cd0t2, . . .)?
You may be able to dd(1) the track & see if it has anything
resembling text in it, or perhaps is mountable as an iso.
