NOW Music are pleased to announce our next release - NOW That’s What I Call A 60s & 70s Summer: Seasons In The Sun’, out June 24th. 86 tracks across 4CDs recalling the nostalgia of past summers with music of the 60s and 70s… a collection of songs that have stood the test time as fantastic summer anthems… the perfect soundtrack to your summertime fun!

Beginning Disc 1 (the 60s) with ‘Surfin’ U.S.A.’, from The Beach Boys with that instantly recognisable, feel-good guitar riff and continuing on a cool coastal theme with, ‘Surf City’ (Jan & Dean) and ‘Wipe Out’ (The Surfaris), before featuring the smooth sound of Otis Redding’s iconic vocals on ‘(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay’. The No.1 from Sandie Shaw ‘(There's) Always Something There To Remind Me’ and Brian Hyland’s ‘Sealed With A Kiss’ also feature. Sonny & Cher’s ‘I Got You Babe’ had to be included, and in celebration of the music inspired by the ‘Summer Of Love’, we’ve featured Scott Mckenzies’s No. 1 ‘San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers In Your Hair)’ and ‘Let’s Go To San Francisco’ by The Flowerpot Men, along with the legendary ‘California Dreamin’’ by The Mamas & The Papas and UK chart topper ‘Something In The Air’ by Thunderclap Newman.

Disc 2 (the 70s) begins with the timeless classics ‘Lovely Day’ (Bill Withers) and ‘I Can See Clearly Now’ (Johnny Nash) before featuring huge pop hits from John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John, The Rubettes, Bay City Rollers and Mungo Jerry with ‘In The Summertime’, which topped the charts for 7 weeks. Wings and Captain & Tennille are here with easy summer memories, before winding down with No. 1’s from 10cc with ‘I’m Not In Love’ and ‘Seasons In The Sun’ from Terry Jacks – a summertime classic.

Back to the 60s for disc 3, kicking off with ‘House Of The Rising Sun’ from The Animals, before featuring ‘Telstar’ (The Tornados) and ‘Cathy’s Clown’ by The Everly Brothers – both massive chart favorites. The chart toppers don’t stop there - including ‘Everlasting Love’ (Love Affair) and ‘It’s Now Or Never’ (Elvis Presley), which spent an incredible 8 weeks at No. 1. Manfred Mann and The Honeycombs are included, as are iconic groups The Ronettes, The Supremes and The Temptations, and the disc closes with two of the sixties’ greatest anthems: ‘Ferry Cross The Mersey’ from Gerry & The Pacemakers, and The Walker Brother’s ‘The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore’.

Our final disc is all about 70s pop and soul, beginning with ‘Hooray! Hooray! It's A Holi-Holiday’ from Boney M., and the joyful anthems ‘Good Times’ from CHIC, and ‘Love Is In The Air’ by John Paul Young. Enduring classics from Candi Staton and Elton John, and beach holiday grooves from Marshall Hain, Baccara and Sheila & B. Devotion follow. More sunshine pop from Barry Manilow, The New Edition and First Class, before massive soul hits from The Stylistics, The Three Degrees and The Isley Brothers, as well as from legendary vocalists Aretha Franklin and Minnie Riperton. The sun sets on this stunning track list with the timeless UK No.1 ‘Albatross’ from superstars Fleetwood Mac – a smash hit in both the 60s and the 70s.

Whether reminiscing about Summer’s past or to soundtrack this year’s sunshine…. NOW That’s What I Call A 60s & 70s Summer: Seasons In The Sun – Out 24th June.
