I used to use Grip but that was dropped in 9.10. Since then I've been
using RipperX which has an option to query freedb.org. If the CD is
not in that database, you will have to do the hard work yourself.
About databases, the two most common databases are CDDB and it's
replacement in many ways, freedb. See
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CDDB for gritty details.
