  2. What a strange selection.
     
  3. Strong "intern's first compilation" energy.
     
  4. It's like some Breeder contestants on The Apprentice have been given the task of compiling the track list for a gay NOW compilation....and they haven't done any research on their demographic but thought they knew best and did a "Bojo winging it job"...

    The first 12 tracks are...fine (maybe Roar and Midnight Sky are a bit random), Relax and Rainbow are nice additions too but For Your Entertainment into Beautiful is a bit abrupt tracklisting dd. It seems quite Americanised??
     
  6. That's because it's a US spin-off.

    I think it looks quite good. It's LGBT artists, pride hits, and gay icons. It's generic, but fun.

  7. Like me.

    (Occasionally).
     
  8. NOW 11 is out today. I just had a look at the tracklisting again and this is definitely my all time favourite NOW. Disc 2 is flawless and takes me right back to early 1988 as a pop loving teen really just getting into music. This reissue means I will finally own Vanessa Paradis' Joe Le Taxi and Krush's House Arrest on CD.

    I love the artwork too

    Can't wait to get my hands on it!
     
  9. NOWs 10-16 were really a golden era.
     
  10. Agreed. NOW 12 is my second favourite though that tails off a bit towards the end of Disc 2.

    I'd happily buy the first 20 if they are reissued.

  11. 14 still eludes me on CD. Not paying over 50 squids.

  12. Let's hope they keep going then!

  13. Trouble is, tracks are bound to be missing. I wonder what they could leave off 14.

  14. No Whitesnake at least!
     
  15. No Bowie, no Tina, no Eddy G, no Whitesnake.

    I expect they'll find something to exclude.

  16. I wonder if they will get the rights for These Dreams by Heart for NOW 12?

    I still find Alone's omission from NOW 10 so odd as it's been on every soft rock compilation CD I've bought in the last 30 years!

  17. Oh, yeah Heart will probably be awol from 12. Sigh.

  18. I didn’t realise Now Yearbook 1983 was announced at the end of May last year, it felt more like Easter time for some reason, I guess it’ll be at least another month until we hear about the next one.

  19. The way the Yearbooks are being released in almost random order, and then with the Extras as well, is confusing if you don't get them when they are released...I didn't realise I hadn't got the 82 extra yet.

  20. I think they release them when the vinyls are almost ready to go. Hence the long and odd gaps between each one.
