This is my personal favorite music store in town. He has a very diverse selection and is always very friendly.
Absolutely love this place!! I'm a DJ from Chicago specializing in all sorts of dance music, from 70s funk and RnB to deep house and techno. I found LOTS of great rare cuts at reckless saint in almost every genre I like to spin. I also came in with a few friends who are also into vinyl and although they aren't necessarily avid collectors, they all were able to find some more well known classic rock and blues records they recognized and enjoyed. That being said, I ended up spending a good hour plus in the store after they left. Scott is a great, friendly guy with a great taste in music and an excellent ear for curating his selection. He even offered to let me look through a few crates of obscure 12" singles he'd just picked up and hadn't yet priced and, let me tell you, I could've spent another 2 hours digging through the rest of those stacks but I had to cut myself off. It's tough to find spots that satisfy both obscure crate diggers like myself and those who simply enjoy collecting their favorite, well known records but reckless saint does that perfectly. It's easily my favorite spot within 100 miles and even competes with my favorite Chicago spots. Not to mention he's got a great collection of vintage stereo equipment and music gear on hand as well. I can't recommend this place enough. It's far from the largest selection but if you take the time to dig through a crate or 2, I promise you'll find at least a few records that catch your eye and if you ask me, that's better than a never ending stack of records you've never seen before. Well, actually that sounds kinda sick to me but probably not to normal humans who don't spend half their free time in record stores digging for diamonds in the rough. In summary, Scott managed to fit a little something for everyone in a small yet inviting and open space. All I'd say is missing is a listening station or 2 to test out some of the older cuts and you've got a perfect record store
Went inside and felt very out of place. This is not your typical record store. It’s definitely gives off a “let’s gentrify downtown” kind of vibes. If you’re looking for a classic record store vibe go somewhere else. It’s not the classic rock-n-roll / deadhead we’re all used too.
This place is awesome very very nice owner. Has some rare Albums and good prices. Even threw in a free 45!
Great place! Solid prices, diverse selection, welcoming atmosphere. Highly recommend to new and old collectors.
