Is there somewhere where I can find CDDB information other than the Apple one?

Thanks

I don't know, but Apple uses Gracenote (http://www.gracenote.com/partners/), so if you want *different* information, you must be careful not to use another service that simply also uses Gracenote....

freedb.org is the successor to the original cddb.

MusicBrainz is another alternative. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEatBrainz is the Mac client.

There are freedb (http://www.freedb.org/) and Musicbrainz (http://musicbrainz.org/).

Trick iTunes into using freedb (http://ourpla.net/cgi-bin/pikie.cgi?_GettingOsxGoing/001035957804.18-SwitchItunesToFreedb).

Other software (http://www.birthday-buzzer.com/other/freedb/freedb_switch.html) that can use freedb
