Music lovers rejoiced when an independent Teesside record store took part in a major national event.
The annual event, now in its eighth year, celebrates the culture of the independently owned record store.
Tom Butchart, owner of the store, said: “Record Store Day is a celebration of music and is a day when lots of exclusives are released that you can only buy from independent shops.

“There is a lot of interest in this area. The first person started queuing at 3.20pm on Friday and overnight, that continued to build.
“By the time we opened at 8am, the queue was around the block.
“People are trying to get their hands on limited editions. Today we have had these from artists such as The Black Keys, U2, the Sex Pistols and George Ezra.
“You get a great mix of small and the bigger labels.”
Manager of Sound it Out Records, Chris Smith added: “For us, Record Store Day is a way for new customers and record buyers to find out about us, and it is also great for our existing customers as we love seeing how excited they get in the run up to the day.
