It is the vinyl countdown.
And plans are well under way at Huddersfield record store Vinyl Tap to make Record Store Day 2016 one to remember.
Hundreds of people are expected to visit the John William street shop on April 16 from 7am to try bag some of the over 500 limited edition vinyl records being put out by musicians to celebrate the format.
But they will not be allowed to buy anything until 8.30am.
It will be the fifth year that Vinyl Tap has taken part in the day, which was started in the USA in 2007 to celebrate the culture of independently-owned record stores.

“It just keeps getting bigger and bigger”, said Tony Boothroyd, owner of the store.
“Last year we had people queuing from 7.30pm the night before.
“We opened the doors at 7am because they must have been so cold, but they weren’t allowed to buy anything until 8.30am as it’s in the Record Store Day rules.
“The day is getting more attention in the press each year but vinyl records are simply hitting the spot at the moment with people because they are great sounding products.

“They didn’t decline when they did because of the public didn’t want them, it was because the record companies stopped producing them.”
New releases from Public Image Ltd, Slaves, Hozier and even Justin Bieber and reissues of classic and rare tracks by 808 State, Bob Dylan, The Cramps, David Bowie and Doctor Who’s Genesis Of The Daleks could be amongst the stash of records sent to Vinyl Tap, which will not know what stock it has to sell until later in the week.

“You sign up to take part then are sent records throughout the week leading up to the day but we never know what we’ve got until the last minute.
“I expect we’ll get most of them but some of the releases are so rare there are only a handful available in the UK, so we can be lucky to just get a couple of copies.
“A couple that it would be good to get are Jimmy Page’s She Just Satisfies, which is very rare, and Regina Spektor’s Soviet Kitsch LP.”
Holmfirth garage rock and blues record label Encierro Records will also be selling copies of their special Record Store Day release via the shop.
It is a re-issue of cult US band Chrome Cranks’ Rubber Rat, whose B-side is Street Waves’ by post punkers Pere Ubu.
The Parish will take over the basement of the shop to put on live bands throughout the day, along with a bar run by Magic Rock and coffee by Dark Woods Coffee.
Those playing include Mr Shiraz, The Orchid Family, Escape Artist, Days Of Riot and Pillgrinns, while the The Colne Valley Funk and Soul Club will dj throughout the day.
Tony said: “The Parish does great work promoting bands, which is good for the town so we’re glad to have them involved.”
