Welcome to Shankly's.

We love records as much as you do. Especially 45s. To be frank.

  • "Queen Of The Vanity Records"

  • Dora Hall is known as "The Queen Of The Vanity Records" although not much is known about Dora prior to her vanity career. We do know that in 1926 she met and married Leo Hulseman, who became a wealthy disposable cup magnate and the founder/ CEO of the Solo Cup Company.
  • But by the early 1960s, Dora Hall, now an aging grandmother, had decided to re-enter show business. Except the industry wasn't interested in an inexperienced older woman with virtually no track record whatsoever.
  • Her husband was more than happy to make her a star.  He set up a few fake record labels --  Reinbeau, Premore, and Cozy -- almost exclusively for recording and releasing his wife's songs. Leo gave the 45s away (or included mail-order coupons) on or in the packaging of his Solo Cozy Cup products.

How we grade records

NM | the record is in great shape, with lots of shine, and plays perfectly.

VG | the disk plays through perfectly and may have occasional surface noise (but no pops or sounds that get in the way of your listening experience.)

G | the record is in poor shape, yet plays through but with surface noise and some pops. We only sell G's if we feel they're hard to find or very important.

Pretty simple, right? We always hit the mark. It's guaranteed.
