It's that all important time of the year again for vinyl enthusiasts nationwide; the annual Record Store Day, celebrating UK's independent record stores. Whether you're an avid collector of 12" discs, 7" discs, picture discs or even discs shaped like a continent (Toto, Africa), there really is something for everyone. Not only is it a day to grab yourself an exclusive press, but it's a day that brings all music fans together into independent shops across the country.
We got ourselves down to our local record store, Rise Records in Bristol, to get a glimpse of the excitement the day brings. The entire shop, front to back was kitted out with posters and fliers, chalkboards and signs pointing customers to the freshly updated section of anticipated releases. PA systems blasted out a shoppers-soundtrack whilst we made a list of some of the best looking releases.
Here is our Top 10 list of best looking records:
