Removing unwanted ID3 tag, How to?

I've got several .ape files with an ID3 tag at the front (courtesy of Exact Audio Copy mis-settings) that aren't being recognized by Picard/Music Brainsz because they don't start with the .ape "MAC " signature.

I started MP3taq, went into Tools / Options / Tags / 'ape, mpc ...' and I set Read: ID3v1, APE; Write: APE; Remove ID3V1, ID3v2.

Next I then loaded/selected the .ape file, changed the genre from "Folk/Rock" to "Easy Listening", and clicked the save icon.

Then I looked at the file with a hex editor. The ID3 tag at the front of the file remained (with genre unchanged):

To remove certain tag types you must use "File > Remove Tags".
That will remove the tag types that are selected in the tag options at "Remove"
