You can download my program Jampal ( http://jampal.sf.net ). This 
creates a library from your mp3 files. The library can be customized to 
contain any combination of mp3 frames you specify. The libraray is a 
file with extension jmp and is a csv (comma separated text file) encoded 
with UTF-8. If you can read a comma separated file this can do what you 
want. Also there is a command line program included with Jampal, 
TagUpdate, which can print the full contents of tags, also can update 
them. The print output would have to be parsed to be usable for 
importing to SQL.
