    I don't own a record player of any sort, but coming here makes me with I had one. They have a lot of music in vinyl in every flavor you can imagine.

    Pretty much just a used records store. Not much distinguishes it from similar places.

    My favorite record store so far. Bigger and more stuff than the other Reckless Records in Madison St

    Be ready to spend some time digging here. There's a lot, and it's only vaguely organized... you'll find something you want, for sure - well, If you can find it!

    This Chicago record shop has stuck around all these years, giving us a just-grungy-enough vibe, staff music reviews thorough enough to rival Pitchfork, and a solid place to sell our old CDs.

    Don't even try to negotiate a price on a record... They won't work with you.

    Head for the "Soul" section, find D'Angelo's "Voodoo" album, and read the sticker novel on the cover. After reading, try to resist the urge to buy it.

    The best record store I've been to. They have personalized labels that they’ll stick on CDs or LPs that are written up to tell you why it's good without being preachy. Good stuff.

    Reckless Records is a diggers’ paradise, where music geeks can flip through thick stacks of booklets to find used and out-of-print discs.

    Pete Wentz loves this place. "If you're not going to dig for it, you're probably not going to find it here. It's something that's missing in art right now."

    My favorite part about Reckless is their personalized labels that they’ll stick on CDs or LPs that are especially good. They’re pretty funny, like a good friend telling you, “you gotta get this.” Read more

    Dig through the new vinyl for unexpected treasures (I found not one, but two Bone Awl LPs). For CDs, the sleeve-only interface is a little haphazard, so better if you know what you're looking for.
