NOW 12″ 80s: 1983

46 extended mixes across four CDs

NOW 12" 80s 1983 Part One - 4CD set

Now That’s What I Call Music’s year-by-year 12-inch series continues with NOW 12″ 80s: 1983, a 4CD set featuring 46 extended mixes from 1983 in what is ‘part one’ of what will presumably be a two-part offering.

Amongst what you might call ‘the usual suspects’ there’s some relatively rare remixes included here, such as Eurythmics’ 12-and-a-half minute remix of ‘Right By Your Side’, the extended version of Adam Ant’s ‘Puss ‘N’ Boots’ and and the 5.40 Jellybean remix of Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson’s US chart-topper ‘Say Say Say’ (notable by its absence on the 2015 Pipes of Peace Archive Collection reissue!).

1983 was obviously a massive year, so you can guess some of the artists represented here, including Tears For Fears (with ‘The Way You Are’ a song semi-disowned by the band, but which always made more sense in extended form), Paul Young, Howard Jones, Wham!, Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran, The Human League, OMD, Blancmange, Ultravox, New Order, Level 42 and many more. Full tracklisting, below.

NOW 12″ 80s: 1983 will be released on 19 July 2024.
