Saturday saw Stroud’s two record shops take part in the annual Record Store Day.
The event, which launched in 2007, celebrates independent record shops, with 260 stores in the UK taking part, including Sound Records in Stroud High Street and Trading Post in Kendrick Street.
Record Store Day also features limited edition releases, and some stores have seen music lovers queuing through the night to get their hands on the exclusive vinyl.
Tom Berry, owner of Sound Records, said: “Record Store Day is now in its 15th year and is the biggest day in the vinyl collector’s calendar.
“Events take place at record stores across the UK as well as all over the world. The day is marked with special releases which are made available first come, first served to customers in stores on the day.
“This year’s must have item was a seven-inch single by Taylor Swift who was also chosen as the annual ambassador for the initiative. People from Swindon, Gloucester, Bristol and Cheltenham flocked to Stroud’s two record stores.”
