Secret 7" at Somerset House

Secret 7" is back this year and it looks like it will be even bigger than last year.  The event is at Somerset House rather than Shoreditch, with the sale being on bank holiday monday, May 4th.  You can view the sleeves now either in person or online.

I queued for a few hours last year and came away with some nice sleeves.  I spent a happy hour or so yesterday reviewing the sleeves from this year's event on their website. Not sure I'll be able to make it this year but I'm sure it will be another very successful for sale.  This year the charity they are supporting is Nordoff Robbins, a musical therapy charity.  This is what the organisers say about the event:
"We take 7 tracks from 7 of the best-known musicians around and press each one 100 times to 7” vinyl. We then invite creatives from around the world to interpret the tracks in their own style for every 7”. 700 sleeves are exhibited and then sold for £50 apiece. You don't know who created the sleeve, or even which song it's for, until you have parted with your cash - the secret lies within."
