Glasgow's indepen-dent music outlets were gearing up for their busiest day of the year, with eager music fans set to queue from 6am to snap up rare releases.

Now in its eighth year, the global event sees more than 600 new and remade releases from stars such as David Bowie, Nirvana and Joy Division hit the shelves of independent shops across the country.

Many of Glasgow's nine shops were celebrating in style by giving out free food and drink, holding live performances and extending their opening hours.

Sandy McLean, owner of Love Music in Dundas Street, anticipated more than 1000 people would pass through his city centre shop today with a queue of around 200 people waiting before he opens at 9am.

He said: "This is bigger than Christmas for us now."
