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.

Warm up starts at 6:30pm, session gets going at 8pm as usual - with an added trivia quiz from yours truly on the artists and songs featured this week!Since the release of Now 102 in Easter 2019, the corresponding Now album from 100 volumes ago has been re-compiled and re-issued on 2-CD sets on the same day. though spin-offs like NOW presents the 70s was being released as a five LP vinyl boxset by Sony/EMI in 2021. The series took its name from a 1920s British advertising poster for Danish Bacon featuring a pig saying "Now. 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. Due to licensing issues, these re-compiled versions often use alternative mixes such as album versions.

The tune is nice and anthemic, if extremely overplayed, but the theme and lyrics are really problematic. they really could have done without Elton John, Depeche Mode, Texas, Rachel Stevens and Friday Hill (I genuinely don't remember anything about those songs despite owning the compilation) to name just five. Initially, a special edition of a Now compilation was quite rare, and between 1994 and 2002, there weren't any released at all. I can only rate it 6/10 as a whole because of the large amount of filler but there are quite a few good tracks here. An earlier compilation tie-in with Smash Hits from 1987 did, however, include tracks from those years.

series has enjoyed great success, with a new compilation released approximately every three to four months. Girls Aloud (as I said before on my girl group review thread, the greatest 21st century pop song by THE 21st century's greatest girl group. Later the series started over with Now Esto Es Música 1, [31] which included songs from artists like Juanes, Enrique Iglesias, George Michael, Sheryl Crow, Tiziano Ferro, Alex Ubago, Las Ketchup and U2. Since the release of Volume 32 in 2009, albums have included bonus "Now What's Next" tracks by not-yet-fully-established artists at the expense of additional hit songs.

The compilation series was conceived in the office of Virgin Records in London and took its name from a 1920s British advertising poster for Danish bacon featuring a pig saying "Now.has released 61 physical albums since 1997, the latest one released July 2020 and further albums were released on streaming platforms only. Over a hundred "main series" (not including spin-off and special edition) albums have been released to date.

The latter contains a new retro-70s Now logo design and artwork which complements its 80s sister Yearbook series.Certainly a very good volume in the series which introduced us to major artists like Rihanna and Pussycat Dolls who would go on to feature many more times in the series.
