I wonder how this shop is still in existence with the awful service and terrible place!
I went into their shop in Covent Garden and on asking whether I could listen to a couple of records to see if it was the style of music I wanted, I was told there were no turntables and the assistant behind the counter said 'it was a pain in the arse' that people bring music to the counter to listen to. Unbelievable. Shocking attitude. What if I brought the albums back because I didn't like them? Yes I could I was told, but I could have some sort of credit or whatever.
I received the same sort of treatment in their Islington store last week. I asked If they had any Brazilian music and the assistant said it was in the 'Latin' section and said that he 'didn't like it.' Never mind I said, you are not buying it. I went upstairs and asked the assistant where Haggle Vinyl was which was in the same street. I was told it was closed. Just out of curiosity I went up to where I thought it was and Haggle Vinyl was open. I spent £100 in Haggle and nothing in Reckless. Also, maybe it is a Southern London thing, but I get the impression that people who work in record shops talk down to you and are a a bit snotty. What's the big deal anyway, most of their stock is just cheap vinyl and CD's, ie: rubbish.
Reckless is a dump with terrible staff. Want to listen to what you are buying? Go to Sounds of the Universe, Phonica, Honest Jon's etc etc. Don't know about you, but I will never go to Reckless again.
