Beginning in late-November of 2009, I began laboriously and lovingly entering, uploading and updating my vast collection of vinyl to Discogs. As I continued to acquire records on-line and at monthly record shows, as well as at thrift, consignment and used record stores, I often wondered if I would ever get caught up. Finally, on March 25, 2017, I entered ZZ Top - La Grange / Tush, the 8548th record to my collection. Until I acquire more vinyl, I am officially caught up!
I am a member of Keystone Record Collectors, a non-profit organization, dedicated to the promotion and advancement of the hobby of music collecting.

◾1.2.3. When using a slash between two words, please use a space on either side of it, for example: ABC Song / XYZ Song.
◾13.1.5. Covers should be added only if they are artwork (no scans of plain sleeves please!). For releases enclosed in or including generic artwork, this artwork can be added, but the primary image must be the center label information, or other such image that shows the most non-generic, release specific information. If available, CD / DVD etc booklets and other goodies are acceptable as well. Picture discs, colored vinyl, and other interesting media should be photographed as clearly as possible, preferably without flash.
◾3.4.6. Singles without sleeves should only list the A side as the title, unless it is a double A sided release. However, if they have two separate artists, one each side, please list both track titles in the main title.
◾6.17.1. The 'Reissue' tag should not be used where the work does not appear in it's original form, for example singles that combine two hits together.
◾ 6.16.6. When Not To Use The 'Compilation' Tag: 7" releases combining previously released singles as "double-hit" type releases.
RSG §13.1.4. .... They must be of the exact release they are attached to, please make sure of this by checking the catalog numbers, matrix numbers and other identifiers. Do not add images of releases with different catalog numbers, labels etc.

NR means no return. it was used by wholesalers to sell remainders (or cut outs) of records that had been deleted and were now out of print. They would usually sell at a discounted price in a special section in most record stores.
