Welcome to Shankly's.

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

dig through our new arrivals
  • Listen to Holiday Records

  • We figured we'd show you a few of our favs.
  • The Velvet Bulldozer, often acknowledged as one of the greatest blues guitarists recorded a desirous ditty for Stax in 1974. “I want you to come in here woman, before them children wake ‘cause Santa's gon’ wants some lovin’” really seems to capture the spirit of giving.
  • Christmas, at its heart, is a holiday for children. All the glitz. All the wonder. So who better that to sing a song about Santa than a charming quintet of siblings?
  • Hawaiian vibraphone and marimba player Arthur Lyman soaks a Christian classic with just the right dose of percussion and exotica.
  • If you are of a certain age, you likely raced home after to school to watch The Electric Company on PBS. And on the better episodes of that children’s show you saw Kelly, the blonde-haired singer of the fake band Short Circus (which at one point also featured Irene Cara). Kelly was played by Bayn Johnson.
  • For the holidays, Jim Croce offered a nuanced look at the end of a relationship. Loneliness seeps out of every line in the tune, “Crowded stores, the corner Santa Claus, tinseled afternoons. And the sidewalk bands play their songs slightly out of tune."

Hawaiian vibraphone and marimba player Arthur Lyman soaks a Christian classic with just the right dose of percussion and exotica. WE THREE KINGS

Kelly was played by Bayn Johnson. CHRISTMAS TEDDY BEAR
For the holidays, Jim Croce offered a nuanced look at the end of a relationship. Loneliness seeps out of every line in the tune, “Crowded stores, the corner Santa Claus, tinseled afternoons. And the sidewalk bands play their songs slightly out of tune." IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY

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.
