Vinyl Lps - a tad over 2000 and growing.

Just over 500 CDs.

A handful of vinyl EPs.

Approaching 5,000 shiny discs rapidly :)

Some 150 records and, while growing, not quite as fast.

One of the beauties about a relational database is that it's relatively easy to customize it for one's own purpose.

At $540 for a single user File Maker Pro is not inexpensive. However, it's a full relational database as is MS Access. The database in Open Office is a full relational database. However, it's free.

OTOH Music Collector ( https://www.collectorz.com/music/music-collector) is $59.95. It's a fully relational database that's purpose built for cataloging music collections. I'm especially attracted by it being installable on multiple PC's for the basic price. I'm tempted to try it.

I do not use my database for playing music. It's only to keep track of my collection much of which is on LP and not liable to be ripped anytime soon.
Yes, FileMaker is not cheap but I find it very easy to learn; not the case with either MS Access or Open Office's db. Not even sure if images can be included... Doesn't seem possible with MS.

Anyway, sorry about taking so long to respond. Was off the web for lack of a computer. :D


Have you tried Music Collector? I'm not delirious about what I see on the web about it but a personal experience could help.

If you want images in an Access database you just add the appropriate field. Once done, adding an image is a simple drag and drop or cut and paste. My Access db has cover art for all the entries. Below is a sample from my Access db
8853

If you're at all curious you can download the Meloman db template from the Open Office site.

I try counting and I lose track every time because I get distracted from finding so many gems.

Sold a few yesterday for less than I was hoping to get. They weren't interested in about 2/3 of the 30 or so I brought in (too common, already in stock, blah blah) despite the fact that they're all in archival sleeves and have been cleaned using a VPI RCM. Hovering around 200 right now. I really need to get around to logging them all on Discogs. I've done some but not all.

I stupidly sold over 7000 45rpm singles about 2 years ago thinking I was doing the 'right thing' in rationalising some of my collection....never again! I have regretted it ever since. Hold on to your vinyl and it will hold on to you.

Do not worry brother ! Plenty of fish in the sea for you to collect... The music is there for you to claim your stake. Onwards and forward !

...stupidly...
Can you explain further?

I once sold my vinyl collection because I needed the money (2008 crisis) and although it was the hardest day in my life, it was not stupid. It was survival.

In your case, either something like that or you had not listened to any of them in ten years... So, where is the stupidity?

My collection hovers around 2000 albums and 1500 singles now. I rotate the singles on a Rockola jukebox that has a most wonderful warm sound.

Maybe not stupid, more an act of temporary insanity! I don't really know 'why', just one of those things where it appeared to be right but was in fact wrong.....ah hindsight!
