About this deal

November 2020) David Bowie, Patti Labelle and Michael McDonald, and the Real Roxanne are the tracks that are missing. Tracks with an asterisk (*) next to their title have also been included in special releases from the series. or Now 70 is a compilation album that was released on 21 July 2008 on Compact Disc and in digital download format. Highlights on Disc 3 include pop idols Donny Osmond, Bay City Rollers, Michael Jackson and David Essex, alongside unforgettable pop-reggae from Janet Kay with ‘Silly Games’, and the No. Lovely tune on the backing track, but then there’s a lot of clashing sung vocals (which are a hideous chipmunk-tuned sample of Westlife’s Written In The Stars) and rapping and it all gets far too messy.

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. first reissued 2009 for the 25th anniversary, then again 20 July 2018 to coincide with Now 100) re-issued on 2CD (gatefold in 2009, jewel case in 2018), audio cassette, and a 2LP vinyl release. Pop-Disco crossover hits from Marshall Hain, Patsy Gallant and Dollar feature, along with the smooth soul of ‘Rock Your Baby’ from George McCrae - and there’s still room for Jigsaw (‘Sky High’), Pilot (‘Magic’) and the No. Due to licensing issues, these re-compiled versions often use alternative mixes such as album versions. I like the guitar on the intro, but in general this one sounds a bit uninspired and forgettable to me.

In November 2018, the Now team took over the " 100 Hits" brand from Demon Music Group, and in 2019 and 2020, the Special Editions series was effectively rested while 24 different Now 100 Hits compilations were issued in very quick succession, until the end of November 2020.

Some of them have unique track listings and are not related to similarly themed collections already issued on compact disc, however, more recent releases have been 'selections' taken from a larger CD collection (Rock, for example).An earlier compilation tie-in with Smash Hits from 1987 did, however, include tracks from those years. Village People, Hot Chocolate and 10cc follow – as does the second featured track from ABBA, ‘SOS’, and Terry Jacks’ No. The series is then moved forward again, with the release of Now Yearbook 1992 in July 2023 (an Extra followed in August).

Irritatingly messy, but I LOVE that sample from Sailor’s A Glass Of Champagne, one of my favourite ’70s glam rock tracks.fm, compilation album tracks appear under the name of Various Artists erroneously because the individual artist is not listed in the album's ID3 information. I’ll probabaly get caned for saying this here but We Cry is actually my fav front Disc 2 My all time favourite song from The Script and is pretty much them at their finest (as they do go downhill after Hall of Fame). Disc 1 kicks off with one of the most enduring songs ever from the legendary ABBA with ‘Mamma Mia’ and continues with back-to-back No.
