Online record marketplace Discogs has relaunched its VinylHub record store directory.

With its growing popularity among vinyl lovers as a resource for buying, selling and cataloguing records, Discogs now wants to allow users to do the same with record stores around the world. As Resident Advisor reports, the recently relaunched service will allow users the ability to rate stores around the world that they have visited while noting various pieces of information about each store including opening times. The service will also chart record fairs and pop-up stores, as well as stores from the past that are no longer open. The site launched a year ago and currently holds information on 4367 record shops. 2016 will also see Discogs fully launch its long-awaited app for iOS and Android devices.

If you love our features, news and reviews, please support what we do with a one-off or regular donation. Year-on-year, our corporate advertising is down by around 90% - a figure that threatens to sink The Quietus. Hit this link to find out more and keep on Black Sky Thinking.

Given the resurgent interest in vinyl as of late, Discogs should gain a whole new audience... I find Discogs research to be invaluable...
