Ahoy there from the Reckless Crew!
Another heavy week – more collections, more lates, tonnes more records. Are you ready for the rundown?
This was written to the sounds of Joshua Abrams (whose LPs we have had in a few times recently and are highly recommended)
- Firstly – Scott went to a collection this week that ended up being at the Warp Records warehouse. They had tonnes of old stock that they wanted rid of. This included about 500 LPs and 12″s of Aphex Twin, Autechre, Broadcast, Nightmares On Wax, Boards Of Canada, Flying Lotus etc It also included thousands of CDs. Theres a lot to get through here but it will go out as soon as we can physically price it up!!
2) Scott was out again on Sunday – this time to an absolutely wicked collection of Rave, Jungle, Breakbeat, UK Garage and Old Skool. Exactly my type of collection!! 😉 I haven’t seen it yet but I know its pretty big (maybe close to a thousand) and has a lot of big hitters from Hyper On Experience to Confetti Records. Scott sent me a load of pics which can be seen on our Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/recklessrecordsuk/
3) Eddie bought in about 50 Reggae and Dancehall titles (with a few Soul too) last week. This included nice Wayne Smith, Junior Delgado, Levi Roots, Jah Shaka, Black Uhuru etc. It was a real mix of pricey and cheap ones. All going out this week!
4) Toru bought in a nice batch of Jazz – all classic artist – all UK titles (mostly UK originals). You’ve got the John Coltrane, the Miles Davis, the Monk, the Mingus. All classics. Deepness.
5) Alan got involved on Friday and bought in a large batch of Sarah Records titles from a Scandinavian Improv artist. Classic Alan. I often see the guy who ran Sarah Records in the local supermarkets in Greenwich – he always brings his own bags – something I respect.
6) I bought in a massive pile of vinyl from someone who had emailed us last Wednesday. This is the just the start of her collection – ad it was killer. Tonnes of white label promos (and standard finished titles) of classic Indie, Shoegaze, Synth Pop, Britpop. Artists like Depeche Mode (the rarest titles in her collection were the DM ones), Ride, The Stone Roses, Chapterhouse, Oasis, The Field Mice (more Sarah Records business) etc.
There are tonnes more collections due to go ahead this week – from an Anarcho Punk vinyl collection, Black Metal/Industrial CD collection, Minimal Techno/Dubstep 12″s. Watch this space!
