[LAU] Discovering file format

I have about 150 uncompressed audio files that I want to properly categorise,
relatively quickly.

The very oldest were recorded as 16bit 44.1k, more recent ones were 16bit, 48k
and the latest ones 24bit 48k.

I've moved them all into the same directory, so is there a simple script I can
run that will scan this and list the name and details of each file?

I can find plenty of programs that can change the format, but can't find any
that will just tell me what it is :(

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
