Sible Hedingham school student selects album to support celebration of national Record Store Day in Sudbury
Independent record shops around the UK – including Sudbury’s Compact Music in North Street – celebrate this year’s Record Store Day on Saturday.
It is when hundreds of limited edition vinyl record releases go on sale.
St Peter’s on Market Hill will be joining the initiative when the community hub hosts the start of a new quarterly initiative called Vinyl Sessions.
The idea is for people to pick their favourite iconic album to be played in St Peter’s, along with an introduction and explanation of why the album has been selected.
Sible Hedingham schoolboy Dylan Barton, 15, has chosen his favourite album for the first of the sessions on Sunday, which will run from 2pm to 4pm.
Dylan has picked Ian Dury’s debut album New Boots and Panties, which was released in 1977.
“I think it will be good because a lot of people will be able to hear it and a lot of people only know him for Reasons to be Cheerful,” said Dylan.
With free entry and a pop-up cafe, subsequent Vinyl Sessions will be held on July 21 and October 6.
