2022 marks the 30th Anniversary of the original Hit Parade single releases, when The Wedding Present released a limited edition 7” single every month throughout 1992 with each making the UK Top 30, equalling the then record of most UK top 30 hits in a year (set by Elvis). An original Gedge composition on the a-side of each single was accompanied by a cover version on the b-side encompassing a wide range of artists from Neil Young, The Go-Betweens, Isaac Hayes and Elton John amongst others.

Sony CMG release a 2LP vinyl set collecting together the A and B-Sides of all 12 of the 7” singles. The vinyl package also includes the CDs of all 24 tracks. The newly configured artwork drawing on the original 7” sleeves has been put together by Hitch, the original designer and the whole project has been overseen by David Gedge. In addition to the 2LP release there's a standalone updated version of the 2CD with the new artwork.
