Now That's What I Call Music (Nostalgia)

  1. I would have stopped at 9. That covered all the most sought-after ones that either didn't exist at all on CD or only in very different form back in the day.

  2. I was kind of glad that Alone was missing from the 10 re-release. Don't feel so bad now for paying over the odds for the original last year.

    And as much as the omissions and errors were annoying, at least we got to fill in the gaps on our CD shelves. Quite satisfying.

  3. They slightly redeemed themselves with 8 and 9, but the horror run of 5, 6 and 7 was a shame.

  4. To say I'm disappointed at all would be an understatement

  5. I don't think the Ministry of Sound Electronic 80s series from 10 years ago can be beaten, it includes a lot of the songs in this track list and dares to dig deeper, also it has several essential Bowie tracks.

  6. I think they should redo Now 1-9 again...

  7. Hear Hear! Their 80s Electronic Chill out triple CD from just after that time is excellent as well!

  8. Oh yes I love that release, I discovered Icehouse because of that compilation.
     
  9. Check out their best single from 1982 called "Great Southern Land"!

  11. Apart from 1, 2, 8 and 9 - all the others are a complete mess
    3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 10 - nightmare!
    I just remember 5 - the first CD being a real car crash with the wrong mixes!

  13. Niether Kissing The Pink or Aztec Camera for the next 1983 add on are the single versions running 3 26 and 3 24 .

  14. Does any NOW nerd have a spreadsheet of all the main NOWs? I’d love to have one but the prospect of creating one for 110 double albums is quite daunting.

  15. Don't know if this could be interesting, but Amazon IT has Now 100 hits Forgotten 80s on preorder for €6,99, release date Dec 15. Don't know if it's a repress or something else.

    Desc:
    UK five CD set. NOW Music presents the brand new compilation of '80s hits that are too good to be forgotten! Featuring songs such as Aneka's 'Japanese Boy', Shalamar's 'A Night To Remember', Sinitta's 'Right Back Where We Started From' and many more. NOW 100 Hits Forgotten 80s is filled with forgotten gems to remind you just how much you loved the decade!
     
  16. Ooh, god yes that would be quite a task. I've started making complete playlists of them all, but only done the first 30 so far.

    My interest waned after 36....
     
  17. My guess is a repress as those three tracks are on the first edition of Forgotten 80's. It's a good series though and there's so much scope for a third Forgotten 80's collection.
     
  18. I agree. Would you buy this if it was available?

     
  19. Yes!
