The Record Collector website is a Web2.0 website - populated and driven by the record collecting community.
As such, much of the information is delivered to you by pulling information that matches your requirements from our databases. Therefore the information we all put in MUST stick to a standard in order for the site to deliver relevant results.
Therefore when you enter artists names, please enter them in the format of first name then second name. For example :
Michael Jackson should be entered as Michael Jackson and NOT Jackson, Michael
The Beatles should be entred as Beatles (removing The from the name)
Other guidelines for formatting artist and band names :
  • Please capitalise the first letter of names
  • Do not include commas or apostrophes, and only use dashes where essential
  • Do not use all capitals unless legitimately
  • Do not include "The" if at the beginning of the band name
