    Is it next to impossible to find B-sides of singles listed on Wikipedia 45 discographies, or am I doin' it wrong?

    Why would you use wiki instead of Discogs?

    I recommend 45cat.com
    I manage all 1800 of my 45 singles on a database made from there. From ‘55-‘85.
    Lots of good info there!

    Cat45.com is the best. Wikipedia sometimes has release dates. Also, try globaldogproductions.info for label discographies.

    Another 'vote' for 45cat, specially for UK and EU releases.
    But also: Discogs info is more extensive for US issues IMO.

    45cat is the best when it comes to singles.
    By far.

    45cat just failed my test miserably. I guess it depends on what one collects. I chose 10 random 7"s in my collection and while all were listed on Discogs, only 5 were on 45cat.

    Right off the bat they didn't have any 7"s by Assuck, possibly the most important US grindcore band ever. Missing Circle Of Dust - Dissolved, Blunderbuss - Road To Arizona and Flagman - Restraint.

    That's true. But, think about it: just about any online recorded audio database is going to have holes.
