Profile:
US label
Label Code: LC 5762 / LC 05762
Shanachie Records was founded in 1976 by Richard Nevins and Dan Collins. According to Harvey Pekar (Secret Museum of Music), it is one of the largest independent record labels in the world, and is currently distributed by E1 Music. Starting as speciality fiddle music label they released work by Celtic groups such as Planxty, Clannad and The Chieftains. Other genres on the label include Latin American, African music, soul, country, reggae and ska. In 1989 they acquired Yazoo Records from Nick Perls. This allowed them to release vintage jazz and blues recordings.

The label name is from the Irish word seanchaí, a storyteller.

The Grammy-award winning Soweto Gospel Choir releases albums on Shanachie Records.

With reference to the comments asking for Shanachie vinyl, back in the day, there was a certain amount of criticism about the quality of Shanachie vinyl and, in fact, of their sound quality in general. I vividly remember a record company principal from the UK who licensed to Shanachie complaining of the results. Ironically enough, he claimed that his vinyl sounded better than their CDs - this at a time, 1989, when CDs were enjoying their honeymoon and were widely considered an improvement over vinyl. Personally, I won’t argue the case either way because there are too many variables.

You out there Shanachie?

I would love to buy the new Pieces Of A Dream LP "On Another Note" on 180 gram vinyl.

Such a pity that this company doesn't release Vinyl. They have so many great artists that I don't buy because I don't do cd's anymore. I know I said this b4 but it just can't be said often enough. Lp is the new CD, Wake up!!!!!!!
