About this deal

So far this is the only volume in the series to feature Luis Fonsi, French Montana (as a lead artist), Maggie Lindemann, Kendrick Lamar and Future. 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. The 1990s Yearbook series contains a new retro-90s logo design and artwork which also complements its sister decade series.

Perhaps I’m being too critical given what was available to choose from during this time period, but definitely having the most talked about song of the moment by Ed Sheeran excluded for a second time (following its eligibility for Now 96) meant that this volume just lacked that spark, and there aren’t too many fond memories of this era for me, however, it is a better score given than the last volume.

The year 1984 followed, but after this, the series rewound its year of focus, issuing collections that went from 1982 and backwards into the late 1970s.

Drake was also overlooked along with omissions from Charlie Puth, Captain SKA, Imagine Dragons, Major Lazer, ZAYN and others.

Another strand of the Now Yearbook series, in August 2022, is the somewhat experimental release of a limited edition, extended play, 7" vinyl single, containing 2 tracks each from the 1983 and 1984 Yearbooks. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. An earlier compilation tie-in with Smash Hits from 1987 did, however, include tracks from those years.The only glitch that I do not approve is the inclusion of the CLEAN versions, as I find this totally unnecessary. They all vary from one to five disc compilations (occasionally six disc), starting in 1986 and continuing to the present day (Jan 2023). Originally, the series captured extended 12" mixes of dance hits of the time, but from 1991 onwards, all Now Dance compilations featured 7" edits with only occasional extended versions or mixes included.

The 4-CD series follows the same general format of the original Special Editions series, with genre, era, and decade collections, but over four compact discs (there is also an abridged vinyl version of Punk and New Wave and Rock), meaning they contain more tracks than the original special editions, but fewer than the Now 100 Hits, which preceded this series. Some of the Special Editions have identical names, although a few of these titles are followed by their year of release. Towards the end of the series, 3-CD digipak sets were issued, but in 2010, the long-running title was retired, and all subsequent dance-themed Now collections have been issued under the Special Editions series. or also known as Now 97, is a two disc compilation album which was released in the United Kingdom and Ireland on 21 July 2017.
