The Hit Parade is a compilation of twelve singles released in one year by The Wedding Present.
In 1992, The Wedding Present equalled Elvis Presley’s record tally of a dozen British Top 30 Singles Chart entries in a year. Perhaps more remarkably, when played in sequence, these twelve original compositions [plus their quixotic cover version flip-sides] stand as a cogent artistic statement, featuring some of the band’s definitive performances.
This limited edition quadruple 10 inch disc box set contains the original tracks [remastered] and comes with specially commissioned sleeve notes by actor and writer Nick Frost.
