About this deal

It’s fair to say that Now 20 is relatively light on dance music with Now Dance ’91 picking up a lot of the slack in the absence of the main series’ summer release. The presentation of each release has evolved notably over time: from 1986 through to 2013, all double and triple CD sets were released in chubby Jewel cases which could hold up to 6 discs. In the age of discovery, fans trust NOW to bet right on artists who are ready to take the next step. And with Universal coming on board in 1986, expanding the chart-topping caches even further, each new Now! Now Dance 92 (2 November 1992) Uniquely, 2-LP/2-MC/CD* with 12" mixes,*single CD with abridged tracklisting and 7" edits.

Towards the end of the series, 3-CD digipak sets were issued, but in 2010, the long-running title was retired, and all subsequent dance-themed Now collections have been issued under the Special Editions series. This House” by Alison Moyet was a dreary, forgettable song, instantly followed by “Walking In Memphis” by Marc Cohn. The flatlining continues with Paula Abdul’s high-maintenance ballad Rush, Rush before a musical treat from Joseph and The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat – Jason Donovan’s likeable Any Dream Will Do. The Now Yearbook series also releases a vinyl selection of its primary release, with an Extra round-up vinyl boxset featuring tracks from the CD-only series, released at the end of 2022.Unfortunately it was flattened, torn apart, and buried alive by the radios, so I will review it as it was still last summer when I first heard it.

My prepubescent soul, ensnared by parental controls on the TV and strict bedtimes, identified strongly with this faraway pop star and her frustration at being so sheltered. For the 30th anniversary of Now in 2013 and the release of Now 100 in Summer 2018, the first Now album was re-compiled and re-issued.An earlier compilation tie-in with Smash Hits from 1987 did, however, include tracks from those years.

my least fave single next to the annoying, DISCUSTINGLY overplayed and very whiny and b-itchy Unfaithful. There are some great tunes on here (including a great version of Gett Off, which is sadly marred by some unnecessary censorship) and it did well to compile the story of 1991 whilst not including Bryan Adams.

The year 1984 followed, but after this, the series rewound its year of focus, issuing collections that went from 1982 and backwards into the late 1970s. A hit during late spring and for a few weeks around Easter 1991, a permanent feature in my friend’s car stereo. Mainly it was because I was older and had a part-time job so could afford the extra instead of saving pocket money when I was younger.
