For the first time EVER on strictly limited-edition CD, the world’s biggest compilation series sees the re-release of the very record where it all began… Now That’s What I Call Music (1).
Today, Now…, on it’s 71st instalment as well as a variety of spin-offs and worldwide editions, consistently reaches number 1 on the compilations charts globally and the iconic brand continues to go from strength to strength; sales today are still breaking records and the albums remain a definitive choice for any music collection.
Celebrating it’s 25th birthday in December 2008, EMI TV have decided to re-release this 1983 classic as a special commemorative anniversary edition for the first time on CD – a version of the vinyl sleeve original.
This fantastic Now…1 track list reads like a who’s who of 1983. Many of the featured artists have gone on to become all-time 80s legends, including Rod Stewart, Paul Young, Tina Turner and Madness. The album itself went on to become a massive success that year; becoming one of a very small handful of compilations to ever top the Official UK Album Charts and selling an impressive 900,000 copies plus in total. It was that album, which set the bench mark for all compilations to follow…
Now…1 includes 11 UK number 1 singles including; Culture Club’s Karma Chameleon, Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse Of The Heart, UB40′s Red Red Wine and the infectiously catchy Candy Girl by New Edition.
