If you take a look at the cdrecord man page, there is an example which 
rtells you, in 2 easy steps, how to make a copy of an audio cd using 
cdrecord.  I've used it and it seems to work fine.
It uses cdda2wav instead of cdparanoia, which is handy because it'll get 
the cddb info if it cannot be gained from the disk itself.
