I agree with Aaron. Even if there is already a list for broadcast sources, it would still be useful to have one for commercial recordings. That way when queries like the one Mike Gray forwarded come along there will be something at hand.

The Library of Congress might have compiled a listing, because whenever
they get requests for duplication of audio they send the requester to
find the copyright owner, and then they might compile the responses as a
guide to future requesters. At least they have the info for broadcasts.
