CD 2 has more of a post-punk/new wave vibe going on and includes ‘The Sound Of The Suburbs’ from The Members, ‘Babylon’s Burning’ from The Ruts, songs from The Jam, The Clash, The Stranglers, Siouxsie And The Banshees, Sex Pistols and Japan, OMD and the band Eurythmics could have been, The Tourists.

The final disc sees a reprise from Blondie (‘Sunday Girl’) and runs the gamut from Boney M.‘s ‘Painter Man’ to BA Robertson’s ‘Knocked It Off’! You’ll find music from Earth, Wind & Fire, Barry White, Commodores, Toto, Thin Lizzy and Status Quo. It signs off with Macca’s Wonderful Christmastime, the Christmas song everyone pretends to hate.

NOW Yearbook Extra 1979 will be released on 21 October 2022.
