Reckless Records is an independent record shop burrowed in the heart of Soho at 30 Berwick Street, just off Oxford Street and close to both Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus tube stations. Soho is famous for its lively culture and many record stores. Reckless was the first record store in Berwick Street, opening there in 1984 and surviving the many ups and downs of the record business over the years. There is also a Reckless Records in Chicago that was established in 1989 and is still going strong.
Their shop features on the Oasis album cover What’s The Story Morning Glory. We always have the album sleeve in the window and tour guides often stop outside our shop and explain where and when the iconic photograph was taken.
