Here's what I recommend.
1) Use ddrescue to read as many data blocks as you can off the CD.
ddrescue will retry failing blocks and then skip over them. You
can rerun ddrescue to try to fill in missing blocks. dd or cat
will generally just stop when it hits the first bad block.
I would do something like:
a) Run several passes of ddrescue using a few different optical
b) Polish the CD.
c) Repeat until you stop getting new data off the CD.
2) Use something like photorec to try to scavange any reconizable
JPEGs (or other file types as desired) from the data image file
you created with ddrescue.
IIRC, there are ebuilds for ddrescue, photorec, and testdisk.
