RecordShack: Help, Shipping, Grading, Contact and General Information
You may view this site in a choice of the most popular currencies, although any payment is shown and processed in UK Pounds. There is now a shopping cart, with clear descriptions of anything you may add to it, plus an ongoing total, again always shown in UK Pounds.

Looking for something ?? Try the Search box, which appears on all pages. Suggestions showing Artist / Titles / Labels are now available, however the search will look through everything, so if the words you are looking for don't immediately show, try it anyway. ( If you don't use the suggestions, then it's best not to mix up Artists and Titles etc. )

Thanks for dropping by. A similar site dealing with Northern / Soul Music can also be found by clicking any NorthernSoulSecords link at the bottom of these pages. Similarly Motown music has it's own site, and the MotownSound link will take you there.
