Sizzling with Sizzla!!!

Oi From Reckless!

This blog was written to the sounds of the Time To Tell reissue LP from Cosey Fanni Tutti which I got in the post this morning. I’ve probably picked it as a tune before but I’ve been listening to it all day – its so killer.

Bit late this post as I was away walking in the Lakes (which was absolutely wicked). It’s been mega hot so it was good timing to get some…

  1. Killer Reggae Business in – some serious 60’s / 70s LPs – lots of classics. A mix of Original and early issue LPs. From Dub to Ska to Roots. Several original Blue Coxsone LPs, Trojan comps, great Dub LPs from Scientist, Joe Gibbs, Augustus Pablo, Dee Jay LPs from U Roy and Dr Alimantado, all time classics from Lee Scratch Perry and Bob Marley, Studio One biscuits. We also bought hundreds of banging Dancehall 45s. We played through a load of them today (how can you not when you have Toru, Ox and me in the shop on a hot day) – and there are some right rippers there. Ox was pulling out so many top tier titles! Beenie Man, Vybz Kartel, Ghost, Elephant Man, Sizzla, Cocoa Tea….mostly bargain titles but a few slightly rarer titles too.
  2. Some nice and rare Classic Rock titles from Black Sabbath (nice Early UK Vertigos), MR Fox (rare Progressive UK Folk), GTO (Frank Zappa related oddball sounds), very clean Neil Young originals, David Bowie, Rod Stewart etc.
  3. A whole heap of UK and US Motown 45s. Some Demos too. Nearly all Company Sleeved up – some of the sweetest, hardest music ever made.
  4. More ultra clean LPs from The Beatles.

Loads of cool stuff has gone out this week:

Rare Depeche Mode SACDs

Loads of Nice condition UK Punk and Post Punk

Some Big Indie LPs

More Hardcore LPs

UK Garage

Tonnes of US House – including Chicago, Detroit and NY

More Jazz (including more Japanese Jazz and Blue Note titles)

Decent LPs from Dr Dooom, Dom & Roland, Johnny L, Beastie Boys, Kenny Larkin, Aphex Twin…
