MUSIC fans queued around the block to get in to a vinyl store on Record Store Day.

Hundreds of people formed lines along New Street, Mold, to get inside Vod Music to get their hands on exclusive vinyl records created especially for the day.

Record Store Day was an American invention in 2007 to celebrate the unique culture of the record store and soon the trend made its way across the Atlantic to the UK.

Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day with fans keen to snap them up.

One fan went to great lengths to make sure she was at the head of the queue at Vod Music.

Shauna Kelly, 19, from Prestatyn, camped outside owner Colin Trueman’s store from 12.30am on Saturday.

The teenager had camped out to make sure she was the one to get her hands on One Direction’s limited edition vinyl Midnight Memories.

Mr Trueman, who runs his store from Wednesday to Saturday, said he had never seen anything like Miss Kelly’s dedication.

“I don’t usually stock One Direction but she turned up and was very keen,” he said.

“I think she was with her nan who had waited with her.”

The record store owner remarked that the turn out had been an improvement on the numbers who visited his store for last year’s Record Store Day.

“I’ve seen nothing like it to how it was this year. It went on for hours and hours,” he said.

“It was really quite a good turn out. Young people are buying vinyls as well and it shows there really is something for everyone.”

Mr Trueman’s store has become quite famous in recent months after being one of two independent music shops in Wales to make the list of top 10 must-visit record shops in the UK, compiled by music magazine Record Collector.

He added that the biggest selling record of the day was Nirvana's 1993 seven inch single Pennyroyal Tea.

As well as the queue at the shop for exclusive releases, a number of activities were held at the Daniel Owen Community Centre including a record Fair, DJs, live bands, film shows and art displays.

    Would have been nice to have known about the events at the Daniel Owen Centre before they took place.
