Record Stores across Dorset are gearing up for the sixth annual Record Store Day which takes place tomorrow (20th April).

Stores across the county are set to participate in a celebratory day of music with limited edition releases and live performances.

Despite online streaming services and digital downloads, record sales are continuing to rise. According to the British Phonographic Industry, 389,000 vinyl records were sold last year with £5.7m spent on album sales alone.
