Catalog your Vinyl

Here’s something for the obsessive record collector to do with his free time: catalog your vinyl on Discogs. I would really like to do it too but as time accelerates I don’t want any of the past to steal from the future. Maybe I can get someone to do it for me? I never knew you could export your collection as a .XLS file… good stuff.

  1. Yeah I am working on the organizing part right now, as my collections has spilled out all over the studio, when I was given a friends amazing collection. I’ve tried the discogs barcode scanner and its hit and miss but a nice feature!

      1. you know sorry i think i added the bar code scanner in there because i used it this week. I’ve got at least 2000+ records. I really need to thin the heard a bit. But lately I’ve been finding all these great disco, italo and proto house records around for real cheap, so i am a bit of an addict.

        1. Excellent record of course! Honestly I can’t sell anything. I find that B-sides I thought were crap in the 80s I now love. If I were super wealthy I’d hire someone to transfer everything in high quality… audio and images to digital. For now I’ll have to just visit them in storage from time to time!

  2. Discogs is great fun – also cool to realise all the alternative names of people so you can realise the connections between old 12″s

    here is some of my stuff – it is a pain to put every record ever in, but I did input most of my favourites that I have:

    1. I think I have to guess you are younger than I am because that’s not a lot of records… you have good ones just not “a lot”!
