NOW Yearbook ’92 – Extra

60 more hits from 1992

Now That’s What I Call Music will follow up their NOW Yearbook ’92 compilation with a 3CD ‘Extra’ version next month.

This offers 60 more hits from the era and acts as a companion to the original release. There’s a bit of a ‘Noah’s Ark’ thing going on with two tracks from Annie Lennox (‘Precious’, ‘Cold’), a couple from Crowded House (‘It’s Only Natural, Four Seasons in One Day’), a pair from Kylie Minogue (‘Finer Feelings’ and ‘What Kind of Fool?’), a dual offering from Suzanne Vega (‘In Liverpool’ and ‘99.9F°’), two from Take That (‘A Million Love Songs’, ‘I Found Heaven’) and the same from Simply Red (‘Your Mirror, Thrill Me).

Suzanne Vega’s excellent 99.9F° is included in NOW Yearbook ’92 – Extra

Queen are represented by solo offerings from Freddie Mercury and Brian May and this ‘Extra’ set offers us tracks from Tori Amos, Dina Carrol, Sophie B. Hawkins, Sade, Tina Turner, Cher, Belinda Carlisle, Gloria Estefan, CeCe Peniston and er, Sonia.

CD 2 dips its elbow into the bathwater of ‘indie’ with tracks from the Manic Street Preachers (their excellent cover of ‘Theme From MAS*H (Suicide Is Painless)’, Suede, The Cure and Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine and there’s ad hoc surprises throughout including the now cat-friendly Curiosity and their last hit (‘Hang On In There Baby)’ and Ryuichi Sakamoto & David Sylvian’s ‘Heartbeat (Tainai Kaiki II) Returning To The Womb’. Not all of these surprises are pleasant (see Nick Berry’s Heartbeat, Billy Ray Cyrus’ Achy Breaky Heart and Urban Hype’s ‘A Trip To Trumpton’) but hey, these were hits at the time! As ever, full tracklisting for this release can be found below.

NOW Yearbook ’92 – Extra will be released on 18 August 2023/
