The correct possessive form is Discogs’. Discogs specific terms should always be capitalized when refering to them as proper nouns.


The heart of Discogs is a user-built database of music. Contributors have submitted millions of releases, accurately detailing the discographies of artists and record label catalogs.


The Discogs Marketplace connects buyers and sellers across the globe. With tens of millions of vinyl records and CDs available from thousands of sellers, this is the premier spot to buy new releases and hard to find gems. Because the Marketplace is built on top of the accurate Discogs database, it is easy for sellers to list their inventory and buyers are able to specify the exact version they want.


The Discogs Community is composed of contributors, sellers, and collectors. Anyone can add to the Database, sell in the Marketplace, and catalog their collection.


A Contributor is one who edits or adds to the Database. Releases, artists, and labels can be submitted and voted on.


A Seller is anyone who sells music in the Discogs Marketplace. From record stores to casual collectors, it’s easy to list your items for sale.


Release is a broad term for any audio product that is made for general public consumption, this is the fundamental thing that Discogs catalogs. A work of music may have been released in 1970 on vinyl, reissued on CD in the 90s, or made available as a digital download in the 2000s. Each qualify as an individual release in the Database.

Master Release

A Master Release is similar to the concept of an album, and is how Discogs gathers two or more matching releases together.
