Thanks for the info. So to clarify, there is access to a Discogs  
dataset but it has the issues which you raised.

I would be interested in working on the interlinking aspect to get  
resources correctly synched with dbtunes and maybe dbpedia concepts  
also. Who was working on that aspect of the data?

cheers
