Here is a list of the top 1500 free long course swims of all time.

I'm sure there are errors and omissions. The omissions will mostly be pre-1996 and from various national and regional meets that I can't find records for, and possibly heats for some of the major events.

Anyway feel free to send me any info to make the list more accurate. Oh yeah, I left Hoffman's swims in, for now at least.
