Its very early and I was up seeing the legendary DJ Kenny White five hours ago spin humble Dubstep tunes to a crowd of 700 screaming bouncers. It was simply incredible seeing a selector go from Shine Anthems to one of the lesser known Forward tunes in a matter of seconds; believe me very few of the crowd had their tops on by the end of the night. But….lets go!

This week was all about reductions, all sides apart from the Dance side got reduced. So the cheap have got a bunch. We also cleared out a load of bits that have been there for ages. So the racks are looking a little fresher and theres a whole bunch of new stuff in the bargain bins. Reductions are a little dry though so lets go into this weeks buying:
When Reckless invests just short of £10,000 on just 6 boxes of records you can imagine how special the contents are.
A 40 year collection of Antipodean Freakbeat, 60s Pop, Psych and Punk shipped over from New Zealand.
Plus rare Australian and New Zealand issues of artists like Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Hendrix and The Who.
A truly amazing collection which took 2 days for our buyers to appraise with a little help from a cat.
It’s going to take a while to process these (Get that ink order in for the photocopier) but look out for some really special 45s hitting the racks over the next few months.
So thats the big news this week. We’ve had loads of other buying this week but nothing that gets anywhere near that. But here you go:
1) Classic Rock – Led Zeppelin, Cream, Groundhogs etc very clean
2) More Jazz from a regular seller – Strata East reissues, Ambient, Japanese Jazz.
3) Indie Rock: Janes Addiction, The Thrills, Athlete, The Vines – all that business.
4) Box Set Business! Loads of huge box sets from people like Frank Turner – a Frank Turner box set – what is the world coming too?
5) Reggae CDs
6) Really nice Reggae 45 collection – tonnes of old Studio One, Alton Ellis, Johnnie Osbourne, The Maytals, The Skatalites etc. All UK or JA originals. Condition up and down but some real killers.
Loads of bits due in – including a huge Reggae and Soul collection that we’ve been chatting about for almost a year.
Have a wicked weekend;
