  • £84.15

Release Date: 14 Jun 2024
Genre: Pop

Each release in our ‘Yearbook’ series includes a vinyl edition, featuring a selection of tracks taken from the full line-up found on the CD version. Inevitably, this has meant that a huge number of fabulous tracks have not been included  on the LP versions… plus we have also released an accompanying CD ‘Extra’ for each of the years.

In late 2022 we released ‘NOW - Yearbook 1980 - 1984: Vinyl Extra’ - a 5LP boxset featuring an album per year for the period 1980-1984, each including an incredible line-up of tracks taken from either the ‘Yearbook’ or ‘Extra’ that hadn’t  been included on a ‘Yearbook’ vinyl edition before. Now for the vinyl collectors, we proudly present the second, and final volume ‘NOW - Yearbook 1980 - 1984: Vinyl Extra: Vol.2’, featuring 78 more moments of Pop magic in a numbered limited-edition boxset  – with each vinyl pressed in the colour of the years’ original ‘Yearbook’. As with the previous edition, none of the tracks appeared on a ’Yearbook’ vinyl edition before..

1980: Kicking off with Queen’s classic ‘Flash’, before a line-up including Paul McCartney with ‘Waterfalls’, The Clash with ‘Bankrobber’, The Cure, Grace Jones and Madness. Dancefloor hits from Diana Ross and The Gap Band, are joined by  electronic pop from Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, John Foxx, and Devo. 

1981: The Police lead a stellar collection that includes on Side One, The Jam, The Teardrop Explodes, Siouxsie and The Banshees and pure pop from Dave Stewart & Barbara Gaskin and Aneka with their #1s… whilst side two celebrates the explosion  of artists enjoying massive synth based hits in 1981, featuring The Human League, Soft Cell, Visage, Spandau Ballet and Heaven 17 – with time for soul ballads from Randy Crawford and Grover Washington feat. Bill Withers. 

1982: Roxy Music, ABC, Dollar, Haircut 100, Japan, The Associates, Toyah, and Gary Numan all presented shiny new pop hits in 1982, included here alongside huge soul-pop crossover hits from Shalamar, Dionne Warwick and Fat Larry’s Band. 

1983: Opening with ‘Flashdance (What A Feeling)’ one of ‘83’s biggest hits for Irene Cara, and featuring the best of the year’s contemporary chart stars including New Order, Altered Images, Echo And The Bunnymen and Aztec Camera… plus pop  smashes from Duran Duran, Adam Ant, and Nick Heyward – before Marillion’s debut hit ‘Garden Party’, Tom Robinson’s timeless ‘War Baby’ – and a perennial Christmas favourite, ‘2000 Miles’ from the Pretenders. 

1984: An incredible year for pop is celebrated here with a run of hits from Eurythmics, Ultravox, Nik Kershaw, Culture Club, and Bananarama on the first side… Flip the disc for Hi-NRG and Electro-dance classics from Bronski Beat, Dead Or  Alive, Evelyn Thomas, Divine, Shannon and signing off with the enduring feel-good anthem ‘It’s Raining Men’ from The Weather Girls’.

For ‘Yearbook’ collectors and vinyl fans – 78 amazing Pop memories showcasing the magic and diversity of the era.
