I wonder if there is a database that includes popular music publication

information, especially date of publication. Does anyone know of one?

If there's one that covers all of modern music history, I'd love to

know about it. However, one useful source is the store CD-Now!

( ). They have 165,000 different CDs available,

and the useful feature is that you can search based on group

name, album title, or song title. They provide release dates for

the albums, so it's pretty handy. I use it quite a bit.
