We recently signed up online for Discogs over the weekend, which is a great way to catalog your collection, as well as buy and sell vinyl, too. The Crate Digger app for iPhone is also a cool tool, and works in conjunction with your Discogs account. Shopping for records and not sure what you have or don’t have? Just refer to your Crate Digger app and it will show you what you have in your collection.
So far, we like Discogs, though much of our Jazz and blues singles don’t appear in the database yet, which has been frustrating, and adding music info to the database seems to be really tricky and time consuming. We certainly appreciate all who have taken the time to build the website’s database!
We have yet to try out purchasing vinyl from Discogs, but we’ve heard nothing but good things. Sometimes you can find what you are looking for here, rather than eBay, and prices seem to be generally on par or better than eBay seller prices.
If you are a Discogs user, let us know what you think about the site/service. Our username is ‘classicwaxxx.’ It’ll take us a while to catalog our singles collection just by itself! Hopefully, we’ll get the hang of it soon, and those missing singles will show up in the database, too!
