I love the idea of Discogs. Reggae really lacks a good database of records and labels. Big labels in other genres such as rock, the info is extensive, but when it comes to reggae theres still a long way to go.
I get the impression that in other music everything is documented when it comes to which year certain pressings came and so on. But for reggae its only some collectors that got the info in their heads. For example if you look at Studio One its a jungle of different pressings and editions. And now when Coxsone is dead who really knows? There are still people out there that were around there and then, but for how long will that last? How many could remember details about a Studio One 60´s pressing in 20 years from now? I see it as a piece of history that should be preserved and the only ones that could manage it would be the old timer-collectors.
I love the way Graal records have made discographies. For example check the article on Pablo Moses - Revolutionary Dream:http://www.graalrecords.fr/moses.htm
This kind of knowledge is deep and rare. Big up up Graal if you read this!
Its only to hope for that the ones with the deeper knowledge is willing to make the effort, then Discogs would become a great(er) database.
