Now Yearbook ’80 – Extra

3CD set with 66 hits

As sure as night follows day, a welcome NOW Yearbook ‘Extra’ follows an original Yearbook release. The latest to be announced is a companion to the excellent Now Yearbook ’80 4CD/3LP set. The bread, if you will, dipped in a gravy of hits, mopping up big singles and other gems, from the beginning of a new decade.

This new set presents much to enjoy, including two – count ’em – singles from Kate Bush’s Never For Ever album (‘Army Dreamers’ and ‘Breathing’), Robert Palmer’s sublime ‘Johnny and Mary’, which wasn’t really a hit, but deserves its inclusion just for being really good. Familiar 45s of the era include Blondie’s ‘Call Me’, The Police’s ‘De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da’, Queen’s ‘Flash’ and Cliff Richard’s ‘Carrie’.

There’s too many great songs to mention, so check out the track listing below, but any compilation that has Dennis Waterman’s ‘I Could Be So Good For You’, Chas & Dave’s ‘Rabbit’ and Barbara Dickson’s ‘January, February’ is alright with me.

This is a 3CD set in a six-panel card sleeve. As always there’s no ‘deluxe’ option (that only applies to the full 4CD Yearbooks) and there’s no vinyl.

Now Yearbook ’80Extra is released on 26 August 2022.
