Around the UK with 82 Singles

Around the UK with 82 Singles

There will be only 1,000 numbered 12″ vinyl singles of Chords and Candies that feature the extra two special mixes for sale.

However, from August 2022, 78 extra copies of the 12″ single will be hidden across the UK. Many will be in charity shops. Each will be marked “hidden copy”.

As well as this, rare white label copies will be placed in four charity shops across the UK – that’s one in England, one in Scotland, one in Northern Ireland, and one in Wales. This means there will be 82 hidden singles in total to reflect the original year of recording, 1982.

This is going to be quite a journey.

You may come across a real bargain. A free copy hidden in a hollow tree. Or in a phone box full of books. It might be that a charity shop has put its own price on one of the hidden singles. Please pay what the shop asks.

Hints as to the whereabouts of hidden copies will appear on this website or on social media from time to time.

Let us know if you find one. Especially if you find one of the four white label versions. We would love to hear from you.

Good hunting.
