Fancy going back in time to 1983? Then you’re in luck with the latest special release from the Now That’s What I Call Music team.

The Now albums started in 1983 and we now can relive that very first long-player with Now Yearbook ’83, a new 80-track 4CD and limited edition 43-track triple translucent red vinyl set.

Including such classics as The Police’s Every Breath You Take, Culture Club’s Karma Chameleon, Elton John’s I’m Still Standing and Nick Heyward’s Whistle Down The Wind as well as lesser known hits such as the Mary Jane Girls’ All Night Long and Fun Boy Three’s The Tunnel Of Love, Now Yearbook ’83 promises to be a comprehensive overview of that epochal year in pop.

Now Yearbook ’83 is available from 25 June.
