Change MP3 Artist Tag

Does anyone know of a utility that I could run in a batch that will take the artist tag in MP3 files and convert them from Last Name, First Name to First Name Last Name?  When I originally ripped these from my CD collection I used Last Name, First Name.  Now I would rather use First Name Last Name.

MP3 Tag Studio will do the job: http://www.magnusbrading.com/mp3ts/

Looks like I might need some help with the program.  Can you guide me on exactly how to do this?  I looked at it and it seems overwhelming.

Sorry, I was wrong, the Program you are looking for is Mp3Tag, not MP3 Tag Studio.
You can get it at www.mp3tag.de

To perform the desired change do the following:
Convert->Actions->New->Enter a name, e.g. "Reverse Name"->New->Select action type "Replace with regular expression"->Field ARTIST, Regular Expression (.+?), (.+) Replace with $2 $1

(See screenshot)
