Holiday Groove 2020 CDs Available Now
HOLIDAY GROOVE 2020:
After the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001, we launched this holiday tradition to spread some much needed joy and spirit. This year's holiday groove is in its 20th edition and we hope the effect remains the same (in this year where we could all really use it)...happy holidays from all of us at Strictly Discs.

USED VINYL ALERT:
Downstairs we go for the Used Vinyl Alert, and you can bet we've got the holidays in mind for you. In addition to our deep selection of holiday LPs, we've added some more new arrivals on the Chrismtas front, including some John Fahey. By surprise demand, we have rolled out a nice stack of polka LPs! We've also loaded up on a lot of names that seem to be on everyone's list this time of year, with big catalog runs from Neil Young, Frank Zappa, Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Frank Sinatra, John Prine, Queen, the Doors, David Bowie, AC/DC, Elton John, and more.
