I shall need to brush up on the mount command to remember how to do that.
What fstype is an audio CD?

But it never used to need these extra steps. I've used EAC for several
years, and it always finds the hardware automatically. IOW, start EAC,
put an audio CD in the drive and the EAC window is immediately populated
with the tracks on the CD, including length, size, gap length, etc.

Something has changed in the last 3 weeks.

mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom-device /mnt/mountpoint

It's possible during one of the updates something somewhere got changed.

barrowhillfarm:~ # mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
mount: block device /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sr0,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

barrowhillfarm:~ # dmesg | tail

I'm not sure what the above means.
