Hundreds attend Mansfield's first Record Store Day

Mansfield's participation in last weekend's national Record Store Day has been hailed as a success by the town's independent record shop.

Vinyl Lounge on Regent Street took part in the event for the first time, and welcomed hundreds of music lovers through its doors on Saturday to pick up special edition releases. The shop's owner Richard Vickerstaff said “[Vinyl] has been coming back for a few years... people get a bit fed up of buying 'fresh air' online with downloads, and if you want physical, you want vinyl.”

The vinyl revival has seen people from across the generations getting into the record buying habit, and Richard added “it's nice to see a lot of younger people getting into vinyl for the first time, and really appreciating it.”

This year's event came after new statistics showed vinyl sales remain on the rise, with over 3 million LPs being sold last year.
