Music fans queued as early as 2.45am on Saturday across Courier Country to get their hands on exclusive vinyl releases.
The mega fans camped outside Assai in Broughty Ferry, packed out Le Freak in Dundee, crammed into Concorde in Perth and mobbed Mo’Fidelity in Montrose to make sure they were some of the first people in the country to pick up rare Record Store Day releases.
One man, Kevin Henderson, lined up outside the Broughty Ferry Assai before 3am, to ensure he was able to pick up pressings of incredibly rare vinyl from David Bowie, U2 and Madonna.
Top of Kevin’s list was a record limited to 983 copies worldwide by a Manchester band called The Waterfront – who later went on to become the Stone Roses.
Such was the anticipation in Angus, the owners of Mo’Fidelity Records had to borrow a tea urn from Montrose FC so they could satisfy the demands of thirsty customers.
Dundee store Le Freak opened only last November, and co-owner Jack Le Feuvre said Record Store Day had been one of the best days of his life.
He said: “The whole event went really well, it was busy from start to finish.
“It felt more like being in a club than in a shop, it was one of the best days of my life.
“We have sold most of the Record Day Store vinyls which came in.”
