Now That's What I Call Music (Nostalgia)

Justice for so many songs that deserved better in 1990, not least, Nick Kamen, Cher, Jane Child, Paul Young, Innocence, Oleta, Dusty and, I'd even say Sonia.

I'd have loved to have seen some Jesus Loves You, Kid Creole & The Coconuts, River City People, Kim Wilde, Frazier Chorus and maybe a splash of And Why Not?, but it again goes to show how strong the pop world was back then that so many cracking songs failed to break through.
Hopefully there’ll be a 1990-1994 Final Chapter and we’ll get some of these, especially Kim Wilde.
 
Yes, from the CD single. I don't think 1234 was ever reissued/expanded, but it should be.
I think there's 4 versions of Heaven.. (Honey, Dub, Doppelganger and 7"), edits of How Much Love and Only One Word, two instrumental b sides and the 5 Morales mixes of Your Wildlife. Bung in some of the much circulated 2cd of demos, you'd have a fairly decent set.
 
So odd that Dub Be Good To Me didn't make any the Main or Extra edition. It must be being saved for NOW 17's re-release perhaps? Even then, it's never been a hard song to license - it's quite the go-to for the NOW compilers.
 
They might be holding it back for The Final Chapter 1990-1994 or its Extra.
Forgot they were a thing. The first Final Chapter came so quickly. Now that the Yearbooks are completely random who knows how long it'll be until we get '85-'89: Final Chapter. Excited for '90-'94 if they ever do that.

Agreed the Yearbooks for 1980-1984 came quite quickly as well as the Final Chapter for that period, it's easy to forget that edition exists since it's been a couple of years since that was released, the sporadic nature of the Yearbook releases has resulted in the series taking a long time to close off particular eras with the Final Chapter, I'm sure there'll be more of those Extra vinyl box sets too.

2 80 years missing: 87 and 89.
I can see Final Chapter more a Xmas thing... Will they release the last 2+2 80s yearbook this year ?
If other decades are selling good, why not ? And they have Now 12" 80s, so the 80s are still rocking.
Maybe next yearbook is one from 70s
