The Rattleback Record Club

Customized just for you!

We’re proud to introduce the Rattleback Record Club 

The Rattleback Record Club, a monthly subscription service designed to help you build your collection and introduce you to new music! Unlike other record clubs, ours is entirely customized just for you based on your music tastes and interests.

Here’s how it works: Fill out our Google form to give us an idea of your likes (and dislikes), and then trust us to curate your custom monthly selections. We will ship you your records for free, or you can pick them up in the shop; the choice is yours!

There are 3 subscription levels



1 New Vinyl LP + 1 Used Vinyl LP

$40* — 1 Month Subscription

$110* — 3 Month Subscription (Save $10)



1 New Vinyl LP + 2 Used Vinyl LP

$55* — 1 Month Subscription

$150* — 3 Month Subscription (Save $15)



2 New Vinyl LP + 2 Used Vinyl LP

$80* — 1 Month Subscription

$215* — 3 Month Subscription (Save $25)


An invoice for your subscription will be emailed to you the first of the month for safe and secure payment online. Your records will be available by the 15th of each month. You can adjust your tier level or cancel at any time.

First-time members get a free special edition Rattleback Records T-shirt!

We guarantee everything we sell to play properly. If you receive a used or new record that is defective we will gladly exchange it for the same record (or one of equal value if we don’t have that exact title in stock).

* Tax will be added to cost of subscription.


It’s an excellent little surprise each month and the picks have been great so far!

Please keep doing what you’re doing! You’re thoughtful picks and hard work have not gone unnoticed.

— Simon F. 

I really appreciate that the records have gotten more and more tailored to my tastes as I have continued with the Record Club. I really appreciate that y’all have taken feedback and adjusted based on learning more about what I’m into!

— Jibreel P. 

Love the selections this month! It’s so funny–our 3 year old is obsessed with the Pixar movie Cars and we have it on repeat with Alexa. The thing is, if you don’t say the word “soundtrack” you get the Gary Numan song, so we never get to listen to it because it’s not the “right one” according to her. We’re glad to see that song on the 80’s album!

— Meredith H. 

I was really happy with the records; they were selections that I wouldn’t probably have sought out and I enjoyed both of them, which was exactly the goal.

— Doug S. 

It’s fun to get a nice surprise opening the bags when we collect each month’s selection! So far we have enjoyed all the picks, and they have nicely added to the diversity and depth of our collection.

— Regan T. 

So far, I’ve been introduced to music I would never have found otherwise. It’s been exactly what I’ve been looking for.

— Matt S. 

My wife loved the records–thanks for the great recommendations! She’s had Sarah Vaughan on non-stop.
Let’s keep doing this on the monthly basis!

— Joe H. 

The Howlin Wolf was just the sort of thing I was looking for! I also really appreciated that this has given me a reason to look up the artists and find out more about them and links they had to other artists; this was a fun rabbit hole to go down.
