Whats going out and what we've bought

Hello from Reckless!

This Blogpost was written to the sounds of:

Some crazy buying this last month, plus we've been really, really busy so stuff has literally been flying off the shelves! We've also been stocking loads more new reissues (plus the odd brand new album!) so that we always have that classic album in stock that you're looking for. We've also added a new cabinet at the back of the shop so we can put out more Box Sets etc.

We've been actual processing machines recently - this is whats been going out:

- Reggae 45s - Ska, Rocksteady, Dancehall, Lovers, Roots. Plenty of nice rare titles on Studio One, Banana etc.

- 90s Indie Rock and Shoegaze

- Early Hardcore through to classic Jungle

- 90s House / Techno / Trance - but all of the good stuff

- Punk 45s

- Metal / Punk CDs (plus loads of ECM, Trunk, Soul Jazz etc

- Jazz LPs

- Soul / Funk / Disco LPs and 12"s - some really great rare titles!

- 90s Hip Hop

- Reggae and Dub LPs and 12"s

- Extreme Metal LPs

- Classic Rock and Pop Vinyl
