If you are using the original recordings from another source, that will be much more difficult if it is tied to an IP. Not impossible, but definitely expensive. In my experience, when I have tried obtaining licensing directly through companies, it results in a flat-out "No!" response.

Which is why I am grateful that compulsory law exists--although it would not be applicable to your scenario since the original recordings are not yours, there's no way to use them without the consent of the publisher/composer

It would be much easier if the recordings were your own. In such case, you would basically just need a mechanical licence , which is easily obtainable via compulsory law via parties such as easysonglicensing.com

If the publisher themself is defunct, in all likelihood, you would just need express written consent of the original composer in my recollection.
