Discogs is an excellent database that complements MusicBrainz. It would be awesome to have Lidarr support metadata information from the Discogs database.

Also, discogs has more correct information on less common records.

Couldn't agree more, I understand its low on the totem pole, but music brainz, just sucks. literally. #1 reason why I cannot rely on lidarr.

So many albums mis-represented, mis-titled, mis-everything on musicbrainz that cannot be fixed or changed. With discogs, simple enough to fix anything wrong, and plenty of information that is already correct.

this feature request should be in TOP!

I think this i actually quite important. If you look at the two sources for the same artist you'll see that MusicBrainz only lists 3 albums, 3 singles and a compiliation, while Discogs lists 4 albums, 4 EPs, a DJ Mix and 39 other singles/releases.

Absolutely needed. For an very old artist like Jabbo Smiith:

MusicBrainz has only 1 complete release and 1 other release with missing data:

With Discogs 21 releases with no apparent missing data.

Many others examples like this available.

Totally need this as release for: Red Sonja (Original Soundtrack) (1985) on discogs: is not available on musicbrainz which would on manual import in queue would glitch rename the 2 only flac files. (

I agree we should have Discogs as a de facto source. I currently scan all my albums with MP3 tag and Discogs. Works A+.

I've been checking the progress of this particular feature almost daily since installing lidarr. Would love to receive an update on just how feasible this is. Many auto-taggers seem to navigate their way around discogs' API without any difficulties.

Not much else to add. Top feature needed.

Any progress on this - the Discogs database has so much more in it - and not just minor artists - examples of artists missing data in Musicbrainz includes AC/DC, Johnny Winter, Led Zep, ... About half the albums or releases I have for them are missing in MB
