Get Your Music Fix at Shangri-La Records

Shop for all kinds of music, from Memphis and beyond.

There's almost nothing better than knowing you've walked into the record store on exactly the right day. You know the day I'm talking about. It's the day when the LP you've wanted forever is not only in stock, but in great shape and on sale. It's the day when hard-to-find classics are just perched on the shelves like they've been waiting for you. The day when the bins are replenished.

It's always one of those days at Shangri-La Records in Midtown.

There's a reason that 30-year-old Shangri-La Records has staying power. It's three rooms full of LPs, singles, CDs, books, posters and merch. Their selection is impressive and well organized.  I'm always most impressed with their selection of Memphis music. They've got it all—rockabilly, blues, indie rock, punk, hip hop, rare singles, and limited releases, all made by bands that call the Bluff City home.
