Discogs.com has been around for while now but it's only recently it seems to have assumed a journal-of-record status. Certainly for me, due to so much of the research I do, it was a site I found myself spending an increasing amount of time trawling through. For a long time, for crate-diggers like me, there was no substitute for holding a record in your hands, which among other things was often the only way you could properly check the credits, the label copy. But now - well, Discogs is a perfectly adequate substitute for getting such dusty fingers! And so since it is indeed now this journal of record, I felt compelled to get in there and make sure the page on yours truly was as complete and correct as it could possibly be, as here
Because if you yourself are not prepared to ensure the information out there on you is not right, nobody else is going to do it, and so it will be misinformation out there. And so I'm pleased to be able to say now that my Discogs page that was already up there is as accurate as I can make it. There's only one glitch - but if Discogs wants to insist that I played on a recording made by Kid Oliver in New Orleans in 1929, I'll just have to wear it!
