The best year in pop celebrated with NOW Yearbook 84

4CD deluxe and 3LP coloured vinyl

The Now What’s That I Call Music Team continue their ‘Yearbook’ series with NOW Yearbook ’84 an 80-track four-CD set and 3LP coloured vinyl package that features 42 defining hits that ruled the charts in 1984, including number ones from Lionel Richie, Chaka Khan, Duran Duran, Frankie Goes To Hollywood and George Michael (solo and with Wham!), together with huge hits from U2, Spandau Ballet, and Deniece Williams.

As with NOW Yearbook ’83 the four-CD set is available in deluxe hardcover book set with a 28-page book with track annotations and music quiz laid out in classic ‘eighties’ style. This is limited to 5,000 units. A slightly cheaper non-deluxe is also available (but you really don’t want to be buying that one).

Limited 3LP coloured vinyl or limited 4CD deluxe edition – or both? You decide (click image to enlarge).

Vinyl fans gets three LPs pressed on gorgeous translucent blue vinyl, secured in poly-lined black inner sleeves which reside in a wide-spined sleeve. Like the deluxe CD set this is limited (3,000 units).

NOW Yearbook ’84 is out on 29 October 2021. Be aware that both the 3LP coloured vinyl and the 4CD deluxe of NOW Yearbook ’83 are already out-of-print, despite only being released in June, so don’t miss out.
