Now That’s What I Call 12″ 70s

4CD set

The Now That’s What I Call Music team continue their occasional 12-inch series with Now 12″ 70s, a 4CD look back at long-versions-of-the-Seventies which takes in disco classics (Amii Stewart, Gloria Gaynor, Diana Ross, Donna Summer); tracks from titans of the decade (Elton John, Wings); remixes from bands who were ushering in the new wave, post-punk era (Blondie, Ian Dury, Japan, Public Image Limited); and more.

Disc one tracks include the original 12-inch version of ‘Are You Ready For Love’ by Elton John, the rare long version of Wings’ non-album single ‘Goodnight Tonight’ (both 1979) and the seven-minute cut of Cliff Richard’s ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ and the 12″ mix of ‘Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick’, and the full length version of The B-52s’ classic ‘Rock Lobster’.

NOW 12″ 70s is a four-CD set in an eight-panel card wallet

On the second CD you find offerings from Sparks, Voyage, Boney M., The Three Degrees and the 7.35 DJ-only promo 12-inch version of Meco’s ‘Star Wars Theme/Cantina Band’.

Discs three and four get down and boogie with hits from Earth, Wind & Fire With The Emotions, McFadden & Whitehead, Heatwave, Dan Hartman, Grace Jones and the full 17-minute ‘Macarthur Park Suite’ from Donna Summer.

In total this set contains 42 extended versions across the four CDs and at under £10 in the UK it’s the usual superb value. Now That’s What I Call 12″ 70s is released on 2 September 2022.
