Now That's What I Call Music (Nostalgia)

I struggle to see the point of these. If I've got all the numbered nows on CD plus the Anniversary/Millennium series what are these really offering? If the artwork was really nice and packaged in a more premium way I'd consider it but I don't think they are.

The hardback editions are nice with the notes inside.
1981 looks great. Will be interesting to see what the Extra holds. I'll do a further 2CD mop up afterwards in line with the others - see Now Yearbook Extra Plus

Wonder will we get the 7" of Antmusic?

In terms of pre-1980, I'd certainly welcome Yearbooks for 1978 and 1979 - both very strong years for singles.
I've followed music for more years than I'd care to admit, and yet I've honestly never heard of 'legend' Christina Perri or her Jar Of Hearts.

I'm guessing Oleta getting promoted is for the same ridiculous reason we have The Artist Currently Known As Eurythmics Dave Stewart Annie Lennox on these comps, but it's nice to see her being namechecked as I always though Woman In Chains was a duet.

As great as Black Velvet is, I'm not sure one hit wonder, Alannah Myles qualifies as a legendary artist, though if we're opening those doors to Miley Cyrus, Bradley Cooper and Train, I'm guessing anyone is a legend... were Pat & Mick too busy to be included on this auspicious list?

We edge ever closer to Now Tory Party Conference Megahits, Now Ashby de la Zouch Legends, and Now Food Bank Classics.

That said, if this level of nonsense is supporting those Yearbook releases, they can fill their Now Boots.
