NOW presents the 70s

Limited edition 5LP vinyl box

The Now That’s What I Call Music team step back into the 1970s for a hit-packed 5LP vinyl box set which is limited to just 1000 units (each box is numbered).

Starting with 1970, each side of vinyl represents one year of the 1970s with Simon and Garfunkel’s ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ kicking things off perfectly as it draws a close on the optimism of the 1960s and ushers in the new decade. Five records later, The Buggles‘ ‘Video Killed The Radio Star’ has a similar role, anticipating the 1980s.
