NEARLY a hundred vinyl fans queued outside a store in Wimborne for Record Store Day.

Colin Brooks, 35, from Poole was front of the queue at Square Records on Saturday.

The keen music collector arrived at the store at 7am the previous morning, 25 hours before the shop was due to open.

Colin has been visiting the shop to celebrate Record Store Day, which sees limited edition vinyl released, since around 2011.

He said: “Rob who runs the store is amazing and also the craic we have on Friday night and Saturday morning is absolutely amazing.”

He said there were others who regularly turned out that he saw in the queue each year and they remained connected by social media but only ever came together for Record Store Day.

The music fans have a “gentleman’s agreement” that people are able to reserve places in the queue and they enjoyed a drink together in Wimborne’s pubs during the evening.

Colin, who described himself as a “90s child” said he bought around £100 worth of limited edition records by The Streets, Prodigy and Green Day, as well as a remix of Chic's Le Freak by Oliver Heldens and a 2018 remaster of Bronski Beat's Smalltown Boy.

He said he had between 5,000 and 6,000 CDs and around 1,000 12 inch records at home but also collected mini disc and cassette tapes.

“I don’t want to think about how much money I’ve spent on music.”

He added: “Music is my absolute muse.”
