Editorial Review of Reckless Records (Lakeview)

With more music than even the largest of iPods can handle, Reckless Records shelves every genre of music in every form, though indie tunes have the best showing. The relatively large store is lined with album covers, and the freshest CDs liners paper the walls directly above the music; it's a good place to look for must-have-it albums.

For even more recommendations, visit one of the listening stations or read the little white labels taped to an astounding number of the selections, which outline similar bands, noteworthy members and often come with a "Highly Recommended!!!!'" footnote.

In true-blue music-lover fashion, you'll also find a decent stock of vinyl here (graded mint, near mint, very good, good and fair), as well as DVDs, video games and music-aficionado magazines. The goods have to come from somewhere (the two stores shelve more than 5,000 new items a week), and if you like, that source can be you: Reckless will pay a few bucks for what it deems worthy. Special orders are happily handled. You'll pay a dear price for really valuable pressings, about average for new, and nice and cheap (less than $10) for a used CD.
