Vinyl Hunt: The Search for the Turn Blue Album at Reckless Records

May 24, 2014

Reckless Records
This week I set off on a mission to find the vinyl version of the Black Key’s latest album TurnBlue. I really like the album but I’ve been holding off buying it on iTunes because the vinyl version comes with an additional MP3 download so it’s like killing two birds with one stone! I had heard through the grapevine that this album wasn’t going to be easy to find. In fact, I heard that it sold out in most record stores the day it was released! But that didn’t stop me from my vinyl hunting, so I decided to head to one of my favorite record stores: Reckless Records!

There was a HUGE Turn Blue vinyl in the window of the store so I thought I was off to a good start! Unfortunately, luck wasn’t on my side that day but I still managed to find some pretty cool deals. Although they didn’t have Turn Blue, they had every other Black Keys album. I asked an employee and it turns out (like most record stores) they were currently sold out of Turn Blue that day. I’m actually happy to have heard that so many stores were sold out of the record because that means this album is very popular and the Black Keys deserve all this success!
 
What I love about Reckless Records is their discount/bargain records section. Most of their discount vinyls range from .99 to 2.99, which is an amazing price. They don’t just have old unwanted records from the 60s or 70s, they have such pretty recent stuff too! I didn’t find the Turn Blue album but I went home with Florence + the Machine’s Lungs album. I went ahead and ordered Turn Blue online because I simply couldn’t wait for it anymore!
