Numbered Limited Edition Coloured Vinyl 5LP

Limited to 3000 Copies

5LP box set featuring an album per year for the period 1980-1984, each including an incredible line-up of tracks taken from either the 'NOW Yearbook' or 'NOW Yearbook Extra', that haven't been included on a 'Yearbook' vinyl edition before; 75 moments of Pop magic in a numbered limited-edition box set, with each vinyl pressed in the colour of the years' original 'Yearbook'. 1980: The stellar track list kicks off with Blondie's No. 1 'Call Me', before a line-up including Madness, Kate Bush, Roxy Music, and Siouxsie and The Banshees. Classic Rock from Motorhead and Judas Priest, Soulful Disco from Diana Ross and Donna Summer, and a perennial Christmas favourite from Jona Lewie are all featured. 1981: Side A reflects the explosion of artists enjoying their huge early hits in this incredible year for Pop; Adam & The Ants, Toyah, Kim Wilde, The Human League, and Fun Boy Three are all included - and on the flip side, The Police open an equally dynamic listing featuring Pretenders, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, Gary Numan, and closes with the Pop gem 'Wired For Sound' from Cliff Richard. 1982: Duran Duran, Haircut 100, Soft Cell, Japan, ABC, The Clash, and The Jam represent some of the greatest artists of all-time, as well as the era - plus pure Pop heaven from Bucks Fizz, Tight Fit and Dollar. 1983: Opening with Wham! and featuring a run of huge hits from '83's contemporary chart stars Spandau Ballet, Bananarama, Paul Young, Culture Club, The Cure and Tears for Fears - plus global smashes from long-established chart legends Elton John, Billy Joel, Robert Plant and 'Say Say Say', the collaboration between Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson. 1984: An amazing year for pop is reflected here with a line-up that kicks off with Queen's iconic 'Radio Ga Ga' and finishes with the biggest selling single of the decade, 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' from Band Aid. Between these are massive hits from Lionel Richie, Rufus and Chaka Khan, Tina Turner, Alison Moyet, Howard Jones and Frankie Goes to Hollywood.
