Discogs as another cddb method for abcde would be great! Many open 
source tools already support their API. Have a look at 
They also have lots of album art / cover pictures in their database. If 
anyone could add discogs to abcde I will be happy to update the 
getalbumart() section

Yet another great database is gracenote (even though there is some 
controversy in the foss world about it). My bluray player is using the 
gracenote database and has never failed looking up a CD. As far as I 
understand it, they have an open API and wrappers for different 
programming languages, but you need a developer ID
