The program you want is Easytag which works really well for this.

However, it seems that the freedb database has been taken over by someone
else, (go to the web site to find out) and the database is broken at this
time. Supposedly they are improving it, but it has been broken a long time.

Here is a message from the easytag owner: (dated Oct 6)
 If you are using the Cddb manual search, you probably remark that it
doesn't work any more...
On the home page of the site you will see that
"MAGIX acquires".

Due to problem of license, some services have been removed for the
moment, like the "search.php" page. This page used for the online search
was also used for the manual in EasyTAG. So this feature can't work for
the moment.

But a new search will be supplied later as you can see in this forum :,8

So we hope that it will be available quickly
