e. Retag the files using track numbers 101, 102, 103 etc for disk 1, and
201, 202, 203 etc for disk 2. This shouldn't break anything else for other
f. Create a playlist with the tracks in the right order.
g. Simply set Comfortably Numb to loop constantly, at maximum volume and
leave the rest of the album alone :-)
