It's a shame really.  A record like Storm the Studio probably couldn't be made in today's legal environment.
Between the choice of giving fans sample info which they'd like to find out, and the band getting into legal trouble, I'd prefer to error on the side of caution.  I know its a risk every band takes when using uncleared samples, I just don't want to add to the risk.

I've heard and read interviews with Jack where he might reveal the source of a sample, and that's how I'd like to keep it, just an informal head nod for those interested.  If I ever get around to compiling something nice and organized and referenced, I'll let the list know and I can send it to interested people off-list.

These are the only two Meat Beat sample lists I know that are still out there, not very exhaustive though:
