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!
