Discogs, by Larry Deniston
For those of you not familiar with it, Discogs is a free database for your physical media and much, much more. I have my entire vinyl collection stored on Discogs. It does take a little time to enter each album, but it’s a pretty simple process. Just enter the matrix number and select the appropriate release, mono/stereo, media (vinyl, CD, reel to reel, etc.). If you like, you may also enter the condition of the media and sleeve. Discogs keeps track of your collection and provides a minimum, medium and maximum value of your collection. It also is a site for buying and selling media.
Additionally, Discogs provides a monthly newsletter which includes Top 30 most expensive items sold during a month and the top 50 best selling records during a month on the Discogs site. Plus some fun and interesting stuff!
