Yo from Reckless!
This blog was written to the sounds of..
Ultra busy week – with a completely mad Saturday which was one of our busiest days for ages!
Lots in this week lets get started.
1. Tom was out at a collection on Friday – at a collectors house in South London where we’ve been loads of times before. We had previously bought collections of Black Metal, Power Electronics, Dungeon Synth, Industrial and Noise. This time it was more of the same, but mostly Black Metal CDs. Lots of favourites, lots of obscurities.
2. Two great Mod collections came in this week. One was an old friend of mine from the Selectadisc days and was all vinyl: Paul Weller, The Action (the great unreleased LP), Small Faces, The Kinks and The Who. There were also a full fun of Ultimate Breaks & Beats comps, a first pressing of the first Strokes LP and a few other rarities. The other collection was all 45 box sets – Ska, RNB, Mod – titles on Soul Jazz Records and similar reissue labels. I believe we may be seeing a lot more records in this ilk soon.
3. Big ol pile of UK Garage came in this week too. Few rare ones but mostly just standard classics from people like Ed Case, Todd Edwards, Nu Birth, So Solid Crew, Roy Davis JR etc. Condition is a bit up and down like most UK Garage you see. Certainly not as clean as the last UKG collection we got!
4. Full run of Jimi Hendrix reissues – in fantastic condition! In fact we had loads of Hendrix bits in this week.
5. Some relatively “modern” bits from Fat White Family (including another signed LP, and a rare 7”), EYEHATEGOD, Refused, MF Doom, Soul Jazz Dub Step comps, Lee Renaldo, Dinosaur JR etc.
6. Tonnes of Jazz CDs came in this week too – from Beebop to modern Jazz. Some fairly decent ones in here too.
7. Great pile of Reggae CDs: Big Youth, Augustus Pablo, Yabby You, Niney, Sly & Robbie, Prince Buster, Bob Marley, Scientist, Jah Shaka etc.
8. Some great Punk LPs came in this week too – The Stooges, Generation X, Chelsea, Sex Pistols, Television etc.
Plenty of interesting stuff went out this week too: Classic Rock (a hell of a lot of Classic Rock!), Blues (more from that great big collection we bought – including some really rare ones!), Drum & Bass/Jungle/UK Garage from that huge collection, more Soul and plenty of Jazz.
Several big collections coming up in the next few weeks too so watch this space!
