Fans of vinyl have been queuing overnight in Norwich city centre to grab the special releases for the 10th Record Store Day today.

Dozens of record enthusiasts waiting for Soundclash in St Benedict's Street to open have been in the street since around 10pm last night, some sleeping in their cars to secure their place at the front of the queue.

William Hall, 18, from Taverham, said he was looking for 'anything psychedelic', having queued since 5am to be one of the first through the doors.

'It's like Christmas, but you have to pay for it,' he said.

Fifty-five year old Steve Kearns, also coming into the city from Taverham, said he was after a vinyl version of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's iconic Hammersmith Odeon '75 recording from London -- the band's first-ever concert outside the U.S.
