Q: how can I get EMMS to read .ogg file tags?

After a fresh system install, EMMS does not read .ogg tags. I've looked at the source code for emms-info-ogginfo, and it uses the variable emms-info-ogginfo-program-name, which is set to ogginfo, which I have on my system. When I run ogginfo from the command line, it correctly returns the tags.

Interestingly, it looks like EMMS finds/uses some but not all of the tags. It appears to get the date and genre correct, but does not populate the track number, artist, or track title.

What gives, and how do I fix it?
