a vintage track when he recorded it in 1981, but he had a knack of recording old tracks and making them his own. The first two volumes were not released on compact disc, and all subsequent releases were either single, double, or triple disc sets. on 24 July 2015, the release dates in the UK and Ireland have been the same following the announcement of the Global Release Day campaign by IFPI, which became effective on 10 July 2015. I could make my own cds because I already own 95% of these songs and download the rest, but some are versions I don't have on cd and I don't feel like ripping vinyl. In February 2023, 12" mixes all taken from the first three Now Dance compilations, originally released in 1985, 1986 and 1989, were collected on a special 4CD and 3LP set, Now Dance: The 80s, with artwork inspired by the original Now Dance 86.

Grandma might be forgetting birthdays, but she'll never forget 'I'll Tumble 4 Ya' which I don't think was a single in England. This is a great collection with some songs I had not heard on CD for years it comprises 5 CD's and is great value for money I keep it in the car and it takes me back to my youth. Even though the cd reissues are flawed with album versions being used instead of single mixes and some of the sets are missing tracks they still have the ability to transport the listener back when tyrants ruled the world, fingers were on buttons and government cheese was for dinner, every night. Good selection, not forgotten for the likes of me but may be for a lot of people who grew up in the 80's. For now I'll pass on the Forgotten 70s, the Forgotten 80s and probably the rest of the Now Forgotten series.They are also notable as being the first time a Now series had released a compilation of hits from the years 1980 to 1982. The original Now Dance series began in 1985 and has been released in a variety of titles, formats, and release frequency. Due to the higher cost of pressing vinyl and the limited time they are available, they are at least three times more expensive than their compact disc counterparts.

The term Various Artists is used in the record industry when numerous singers and musicians collaborate on a song or collection of songs. All series with the exception of United Kingdom and the United States have been discontinued, New Zealand had two more albums released as a playlist only on Spotify, South Africa had three more albums released as a playlist on Spotify under DJ Kurtis. As Frankie Goes To Hollywood says here, 'Relax' - and this is the perfect album to get you through any lockdown and beyond. this arrived wrapped in celophane but once removed trying to open the five cd's was a joke, the whole thing was stuck together. The Now Yearbook series also releases a vinyl selection of its primary release, with an Extra round-up vinyl boxset featuring tracks from the CD-only series, released at the end of 2022.The Special Editions series includes a wide range of Now anniversary collections, different music genres, eras, and decades, as well as commercial tie-ins with Smash Hits, Disney, Eurovision, HMV and the Official Chart Company. A further release, The Final Chapter, a deluxe 4-CD and 3-LP set, was issued in December 2022, rounding off the Yearbook years 1980 to 1984. George Michael starts the journey off with 'Careless Whisper,' before Whitney Houston informs us that 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody,' which leads into 'Billie Jean' by Michael Jackson - all three artists are huge talents we lost far too soon. The 1990s Yearbook series contains a new retro-90s logo design and artwork which also complements its sister decade series.

The tie-in television programmes are a month by month video playlist of tracks, from one year previously featured on a Now Yearbook album, with Bruno Brookes presenting. album, from June to August in 1993, a series of ten, 40-track yearly collections were released on CD and cassette (but not vinyl), covering the years 1983 to 1992. Track sound quality is generally good to excellent, (with the notable exception of Under Your Thumb by Godley And Creme which sounds muffled and noise-gated to hell) but volume level between one track and another is very inconsistent - and it's not just due to mastering either. Adam Ant's poster was on many a teenage girls bedroom wall and 'Stand and Deliver' might be nearly 40 years old but still sounds good.Some of the Special Editions have identical names, although a few of these titles are followed by their year of release. The New Romantic period is covered with Number 1s from Duran Duran with 'Reflex', Spandau Ballet with 'True,' and 'Do You Really Want To Hurt Me' by Culture Club.

THIS A GOOD COLLECTION OF SONGS FROM THE 1980's BUT THERE ARE A FEW SONGS MISSING THAT SHOULD BE ON THIS C. It is hard to think now that a rock track would get to Number 1 these days, but Europe did it with 'The Final Countdown' in 1986, and Survivor did too with 'Eye of the Tiger'. The frequency in which they were released also varied from year to year; initially, and most frequently across the series, there would be one Now Dance volume per year, but in 1994 for example, there were four volumes released, and in 1996, there weren't any Now Dance compilations released. July 2019) re-issued on 2-CD - 28 tracks with only Bob Marley and the Wailers and Gary Glitter missing.

A standard 4-CD version is also issued in a gatefold "wallet" design, which retails cheaper than the mini-hardback books. The Now Yearbook series continues both forwards, with Now Yearbook 1985 issued in November 2022, and backwards, with the release of Now Yearbook 1979 in September 2022 (an Extra followed in October).
