Well done Curtis.

Did you actually type in every track and detail? or did you manage to
pull some of this data from other sources to save you from typing it

For example the All Music Guide (, and some CD
vendors on-line (like CDnow, CDuniverse and CDconnection) have a lot
of track information, as well as personnel, recording dates etc.....

However, these can be inconsistent and occassionally incorrect, so it
is still important to compare the actual CD sleeve notes.
