Discogs Staff Important Information About US Sales Tax Changes For Discogs Sellers

In June 2018, a Supreme Court decision ruled that physical presence in a state was no longer required for a state to impose sales tax obligations on retailers. Simply put, if a company does business in a state via an online business, it can be required to collect taxes.

With this ruling, Marketplace Facilitator and Remote Seller laws are rapidly becoming more common across the United States and are imposing changes in how taxes work online. We know that tax changes can be confusing, so we’d like to outline what we’re doing to handle tax collection on Discogs. As always, our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to run your business.

How Does The New Tax Law Affect You?

Starting July 1, Discogs is implementing a sales tax calculation on transactions where the buyer is located in the US. In states governed by Marketplace Facilitator (MPF) laws that apply to Discogs, this sales tax will be required, and Discogs will be responsible for collection and remittance. In other states, sellers who qualify under the Remote Seller laws, will need to make their own determination of whether or not to apply sales tax to transactions. Please consult a tax advisor to better understand your specific tax situation.

To help sellers with managing US state sales taxes, Discogs is launching a new feature where you can view MPF states as well as toggle on/off additional states where you determine it is necessary to add sales tax. You will be able to find the new tool in your seller settings starting July 1.

How can I learn more?

For more information on these new tax requirements, please reference our help article and consult with your tax advisor.

Thank you for being an important part of the Discogs community!

falsepriest Discogs Integrates More Music Data, including Music Books, Posters and Films

Music lovers don’t just listen to the music — we live it. We obsessively read about it, absorb facts about it in documentaries, watch all the biopics (even the ones that suck), plaster our walls with posters of our favorite bands. Why not have all that stuff we love about music collected all in one place?

Book, Poster, And Film Tabs On Discogs Artist Pages

As well as having access to the complete discography of recording artists from around the world, you can now view books, films, and posters by and about those artists on their Discogs artist page. These items are pulled in from our burgeoning community-built databases, Bookogs, Filmogs, and Posterogs.

More Music History

Discogs has always stood for three key things: music, physical media, and data. Release page data is about as reliable as a source gets, but can leave you wanting in the story and context department. Looking at release data, would you know the great myth about Robert Johnson selling his soul to the devil in exchange for prodigious guitar-playing skills? That in South Africa, Rodriguez is held in the same esteem as The Beatles, despite being relatively unknown in the US? Or how Arctic Monkeys’ early success was predicated on MySpace and burnt CDs? Not to mention the names of uncredited but hugely influential session musicians of the ’60s and ’70s. Extending from physical music releases to music-centered collectibles that corroborate that release data or anchor releases and artists in a time, space, or scene, is a logical progression for Discogs.

David Bowie Posters on the Discogs Database

Add Your Music Books, Posters, And Films

You might struggle to find a release that isn’t on Discogs, but you probably have music biographies, memoirs, documentaries, biopics, or posters, that we’re saving a spot for. You can add your books here, posters here, and films here.

We Want To Hear From You

We’re super excited about extending Discogs’ music data offering and improving this feature with your help. Let us know what you think and how you think it could be better.

Anyway, reading about it is one thing. Head over to your favorite artist’s page on Discogs and check out their books, posters, and films for the full experience.

Discogs Staff The Biggest Rock Operas Ever, In Light Of ‘The Who’s Tommy Orchestral’

.discogs-album p {display:none !important} .discogs-album {border-radius: 7px; margin-top: 10px; margin-bottom:0; margin-left:35px;width:calc(100% – 70px)} @media (max-width: 640px) {.discogs-album {border-radius: 0px; margin-left:0; width:100%; }}

The term “rock opera” applies to hundreds of albums. Off hand, you can probably think of a handful of records that tell a unified story throughout their runtime. While most popular in the late ’60s and early ’70s, the framework has been used consistently since Simon The Simopath — considered by some as the first rock opera — was released in 1967.

Pink Floyd didn’t release The Wall until 1979, Queensrÿche closed out the ’80s with Operation: Mindcrime, and bands like Green Day, Fucked Up, and My Chemical Romance released rock operas in this century. There’s even the sub-subgenre of rap operas (or hip-hopera if you’re looking to get punny).

But if you’re on Family Feud and Steve Harvey tells you to name a rock opera, the number one answer will almost certainly be: The Who’s Tommy. The Who helped coin the phrase, after all.

On June 14, Roger Daltrey marked the 50th anniversary of the landmark rock opera by making even more operatic. He released The Who’s Tommy Orchestral, a live album recorded during last year’s world tour with an orchestra conducted by Keith Levenson and arrangements provided by David Campbell.  

“The sound of all these musicians takes your face off, it’s so physically powerful,” Daltrey told iNews recently. “I’ve always said Townshend writes in the classical form. I think Tommy is one of the best operas ever written.”

In addition to the orchestra, Daltrey was joined by musicians who’ve played live with The Who in recent years, including Simon Townshend, Frank Simes, Scott Devours, Jon Button, and Loren Gold.

Recorded on the site of the original Woodstock festival, The Who’s Tommy Orchestral is a new presentation of the rock opera — distinctly different from the London Symphony Orchestra’s overwrought 1972 version. It also contains a slightly augmented track list when compared to the original edition of Tommy.

That said, it’s not meant to be a drastic departure from the source material. “We stay faithful to the record,” Daltrey told Rolling Stone. “We treat it with the respect that you’d treat a Mozart opera.”

In light of Tommy’s 50th anniversary and the release of The Who’s Tommy Orchestral, here are the biggest rock operas — and one rap opera — of all time according to the Discogs community. Since some records straddle the line between full-blown rock opera (a unified narrative) and just a concept album (songs linked by a general concept), there may be some borderline LPs that didn’t quite fit on this list. Let us know what your favorites are in the comments.

Discogs Staff Label Spotlight: Daupe!

Daupe! is an independent label from the UK specializing in rare rap releases on vinyl. Since its inception, the label has been highly influential in the world of indie hiphop thanks to the quality, limited runs, presentation, and even the format of releases.

Some of the records can fetch a pretty penny on Discogs, and it’s clear with the commitment to quality that Daupe! treats physical media and vinyl culture with the greatest respect. We wanted to catch up with head honcho The Purist to get to know the philosophy of the brand a bit better.

Thanks for taking the time to talk to us. Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

I’m The Purist. I’m a producer (sometimes), DJ, and creative director of Daupe!

You’re a self described “purveyor of luxury rap beats,” and your label is a testament to that, with releases selling out almost instantly every time and high quality control. You definitely seemed to be a precursor to a new type of label in rap music. How did you know there was a demand for this kind of material?

I had just always done it for the love of the music and the culture. People weren’t really doing vinyl releases that much, and if they were it was on the “stack high, sell it cheap” model. I knew it would come back, but not like this. I suppose now people are just jumping on the bandwagon looking for a quick buck.

What effect did Discogs have in terms of resale on your releases? Once you saw what was happening, did that inform how you operated as a label?

Well, we had to limit the Japanese releases to one per customer as we saw the resale market taking off. People started trying to cop 20-30 copies of each release.

Speaking of the Japanese releases, can you explain the motivation to do different versions of each release — particularly the Japanese releases at a time when people were not doing obi strips outside of Japan as much as they are today?

Well we were still wholesaling a small amount of the releases at the time. And a Japanese store called Jet Set took a quantity of my album Trill, so we made some custom obi strips just for them. We just carried on from there. Never thought it would catch on like it has. Shout out to Jet Set.

Looking at what Roc Marciano did with his releases this year, he claims to have had success with a more independent approach. With the growing trend of artists working apart from major labels, what can labels like yours offer these kinds of artists?

We offer a fairer split of profits than a major or previous indies, giving the bulk to the artist. We put a great deal of care into the design and manufacture of the finished product. The delivery of these takes a great deal of expertise. Also, the sheer logistics of getting the product to the customer isn’t to be sniffed at.

As a producer, how is sampling and physical media a central part of your workflow?

Every track I’ve made is 100% sampled and 100% sampled from vinyl. Kick, loop, effect; everything.

What does your record collection look like these days? What kind of things are you buying?

It’s not as crazy as it used to be. So I’ve been moving on stuff, just trying to keep it sane. I’ve currently got the entire SPM library sitting in my kitchen. These days mainly stuff from Japan and the former Soviet Union. Always on the lookout for gospel, too.

Aside from records to sample, what kind of things are you listening to?

Everything from Ghanaian disco to Japanese boogie. Kadhja Bonet still gets played on the daily.

Being from the UK, how do you manage to stay up on genres that just are not so prevalent over here; gospel for example?

You have to travel. It’s no good digging for gospel in London.

Having been a collector from both the pre- and post-Discogs eras, what impact has Discogs had on the culture?

Dealers cant pass off trash records just because they are rare anymore. By the same token, it’s hard to come up on any steals, as everyone knows a record’s value at the click of a button.

We ran a great event in Brighton this year As the hub of your operation, why did you choose Brighton and what do you like about the city there?

It’s a cool city; close to home and close to London. It was no-brainer.

For those people travelling to Brighton to visit and dig, what are your recommendations for the city?

Go digging in Rarekind Records. It’s something of a Brighton institution. For some local seafood hIt up, Ridde & Finn’s or 64 Degrees.

Finally, what should we be keeping our ears/eyes open for in the coming months from the label?

The new Westside Gunn 4th Rope record is out now. Everything else is top secret.

Sean Cannon I’m With Her Explore Vinyl Mastering And Production Process In Mini-Documentary

.wide-image span {line-height:1.25em; font-style:normal; text-align:left; margin:6px 0 -5px; padding:0px;} @media (max-width:900px){.wide-image span {padding:0 12px;}

In 2018, the folky supergroup I’m With Her released their critically-lauded debut album, See You Around. The vinyl pressing of the record was a collector’s dream, with four different editions (black, white, blue, and maroon, all on 180 gram wax) to track down out in the wild.

With the continued growth of vinyl as a format, some are cashing in with shoddy, slapdash pressings or releases billed as “limited edition” even though they run numbers into the thousands. This wasn’t the case for I’m With Her. They wanted to honor the format and create something special, because vinyl is important to them.

For Aoife O’Donovan — one third of I’m With Her and an accomplished singer-songwriter in her own right, just like the rest of the band — a love of the format was practically baked into her DNA. “When I was first getting into music, I was fascinated by my dad’s room of records in our basement,” she recounted. “He was, and still is, a radio DJ, so he had quite the collection.”

He got rid of the entire collection in the ’90s like so many folks, but that didn’t stop O’Donovan from rekindling her love of vinyl in college. “I received the Abdullah Ibrahim album Water From An Ancient Well from a friend,” she said. “It quickly became a staple in my tiny Boston apartment. I’d rush over to the record player as side A was coming to a close, not wanting to have any dead air.”

That immersive experience connected with her in a deeply philosophical way. “I loved the concept of two sides, something that I feel has gotten lost as we got into CD territory, and especially now in the digital age. Records tell stories in a different way.”

O’Donovan’s bandmate Sarah Jarosz feels that same sense of loss with digital listening. “I realize that most of the world doesn’t listen to music via physical platforms anymore, but it’s been heartening to see a wave of vinyl lovers re-emerge,” she said. “It truly offers a sonic experience that’s superior in quality and detail to that of streaming music online.”

I'm With HerThe different editions of See You Around, alongside the various singles from I’m With Her, showcase the band’s love of vinyl.

With such a reverence for wax, I’m With Her didn’t want to skimp on production. They asked legendary engineer Bernie Grundman to handle the mastering and lacquering, and went to the venerable Record Technology Incorporated for plating and pressing.

The trio also decided to document the entire process in a short film, directed by award-winning New York Times Op-Docs filmmaker Genéa Gaudet. You can watch it above.

“Vinyl holds a meaningful place in so many people’s lives, we thought it would interest people to see a bit of how it’s made,” said Sara Watkins, who’s also a member of Nickel Creek when not doing solo work or collaborating with I’m With Her. “It certainly interested us!”

Watkins serves as the de facto star of the mini-doc — alongside the vinyl, of course — as she tours Grundman’s studio. “This was the first time I was able to witness the vinyl mastering happen, and now having seen it I appreciate listening to vinyl even a little bit more,” she said. “It’s fascinating to see isn’t it? Bernie was so kind to go into some depth of his process.”

In the wake of the documentary’s release, I’m With Her are meeting up with Watkins’ Nickel Creek comrade Chris Thile for the June 15 episode of public radio powerhouse Live From Here, and they’ll be on tour throughout the summer.

Diognes_The_Fox The Discogs Top 50 Best Selling Records Of April 2019

It’s bullshit. This is all bullshit, and you all know it. Look at it. Look at this. Reissues of reissues and barrel scrapings by faded artists of years past. It’s as if the great music of the world burnt up in some big fire and there just wasn’t enough to go around anymore. We let this happen. This is our fault. We let a tiny handful of individuals take away our collective musical heritage, bribe our government representatives to ensure we’ll never get it back, and they burnt it. We did this when we bought the same old trash over and over and over. You should be angry. Be angry right now. Do better, damn it. Stop supporting this trash and self-release and support independent artists and labels.

Discogs Staff Discogs’ Top 100 Most Expensive Records: United Kingdom

As record collectors, we’ve ponied up for our fair share of in-demand records that were pressed in tragically low numbers. We wanted to see if anything we’ve purchased ranked amongst the most expensive records sold in the Discogs Marketplace since it began way back in 2005.

Our criteria included albums that were actually sold and paid for. All prices have been converted to US dollars using the exchange rates at the time the sale was made. Some releases might appear more than once, since some sought-after records sell often — and for a lot.

If you want to dig in and figure out why some of these records were sold for such eye-popping prices, we included a link to each release for your perusal.

Do you notice any other interesting trends? Shout at us in the comments. And if this has piqued your interest when it comes to expensive records, we also publish a monthly list of the most expensive items purchased worldwide.

If you have any records that you might want to sell, you can use the Discogs Marketplace to connect with buyers from around the world. Learn how to use Discogs to price and sell your vinyl records online.

SoLil Crate Minds: Mathias Gordon Of Recordsale-de

In our Crate Minds series, we highlight the people behind the Discogs accounts. This time we would like to introduce you to Berlin based recordsale-de. They have an incredible stock of 1,200,000(!) items, most of which are offered on Discogs. We asked CEO Mathias Gordon about the story behind their Discogs account.

Can you give us a bit of background on yourself?

Due to the lack of the skills of playing my own music, I have been a music enthusiast from a very young age. I opened my first club by the age of 22, turned castles into party locations, and toured Europe and Russia with many bands.

Please tell us more about recordsale-de, its history and the rest of the team!

Recordsale was founded on my balcony after my brother died. He was more a record collector than I was. He always complained that there was no decent internet shop for vinyl records out there, so it was a kind of metaphysical courtesy to my brother to found recordsale-de and make it the hopefully best record store worldwide.

[Employee number two] was my neighbor packing the packages. He is still on board.

We are 60 music maniacs from 15 countries, working for recordsale-de at the moment, doing the grading, the pricing, the packing, the service, the cleaning and the taxes. We are an official training company in cooperation with the trade chamber. We pay salaries negotiated by the union, in these terms we are pretty old school. There isn’t a single employee who isn’t passionate about vinyl. That makes us a great company I guess.

What sets your business apart from others?

Simply size and professionalism. Think of a common record from the past 60 years, we definitely have it in stock. Also many rarities and obscurities of course.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

My colleagues, the music all around, especially in our “cathedral”: the warehouse.

You travel around the world to purchase records. What has been your most exciting adventure/best memory?

The first container from the US was exciting. We bought 80,000 12-inches in Florida. I was impressed by the professionalism with which our US partners handled everything, apart from the paperwork, haha! And buying a huge collection from Hans Pokora’s collection. Thank you, Hans!

Monster Movie The Can

What’s your most unexpected find in recent years?
Two original first presses of Can’s Monster Movie in one collection, and the honor to be able to buy them.

If we were digging through your personal collection, what would we find?

My personal collection is veeerry eclectic. I wouldn’t listen to music at home which doesn’t touch me emotionally, but what kind of music that is, varies of course.

Is there a record that you would never sell? Which one and why?

I do not stick to material things too much, but I wouldn’t give away my brother’s funeral song.

What does the record scene in Germany look like?

In Berlin it’s great and very diverse, it’s a mecca a I guess.

How do you see the future for vinyl records?

Same as it will be for books, for paintings, for handmade furniture, for sailing boats: They will never disappear.

What is your number one tip for buyers and/or sellers on Discogs?

Keep away from anonymous sellers.

Anything else you would like us to know?

We are not the ultimate vinyl resource on the web: We’re just an ordinary record store!

Check out what recordsale-de has in store for you in their Discogs shop!
