Why only credit for CD releases? (not LPs, digital downloads, etc)

Hello,
I'm curious why the only releases in your database seem to be CDs. Especially today when labels are beginning to release LPs + a download option and choosing not to release CDs at all. It seems like your database is truly incomplete and Discogs is becoming the go-to resource. But since many sites pull your data, it is making it very difficult to find comprehensive music credits and information.

Hi Be,
We do list LP releases on the site.
If you look at the Releases tab for an album, you'll be able to browse the different versions of the album.

It looks like we have listings for two different CD releases and one LP release of that album, but we are missing the digital-only release version.



This is the information that has come in from our sources (vendors, distributors, catalog lists, etc).

We cover as much as we can but we do not have the resources to scour individual indie label websites and ensure that each version of each album is represented.

I'll see about getting the digital version of this release added.
