NOW Yearbook Extra 1974

£8.99

Released: 7th June 2024. NOW Music proudly presents 64 more essential singles from the incredible year in Pop that was 1974. CD1 sets the tone with electrifying Rock and Glam hits, opening with Queen's timeless anthem 'Seven Seas of Rhye' and Elton John's powerful 'The Bitch Is Back'. The album keeps the energy high with tracks from Suzi Quatro, Mud, Slade, and Mott the Hoople. Alice Cooper's 'Teenage Lament '74' and Status Quo's 'Break the Rules' add a touch of Rock 'N' Roll edge, while huge Pop hits from David Essex, Alvin Stardust, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, and Bay City Rollers lead toward hit cover versions from Gary Shearston and Bryan Ferry to round off the first CD. CD2 is a soulful journey through the smooth sounds of the year. The Love Unlimited Orchestra's sensual 'Love's Theme' sets the mood, followed by a mix of deep grooves from MFSB, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, and The Tymes. Duets from Diana Ross & Marvin Gaye and Dionne Warwick & The Spinners offer great collaborations. Dance-floor hits from KC & The Sunshine Band, Commodores, and Roberta Flack keep the groove alive, and re-released hits from R. Dean Taylor and Robert Knight are celebrated, while Barry White's passionate 'Never, Never Gonna Give Ya Up' seals the disc with his rich vocals. CD3 closes out the collection with an eclectic mix of styles, from Elton John's interpretation of 'Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds', Sparks with 'Never Turn Your Back On Mother Earth' to the infectious Pop of Blue Swede's 'Hooked On a Feeling' and The Wombles' playful 'Remember You're a Womble'. Hits from Leo Sayer, Scaffold and Lobo are joined by Easy-listening Pop from Neil Sedaka, The New Seekers and Prelude's hit cover of 'After the Goldrush'. Timeless tracks from Diana Ross, Elvis Presley, and Andy Williams bring an air of nostalgia, before the collection concludes with uplifting tunes from Olivia Newton-John with her 1974 Eurovision contender, Sylvia Vrethammar's Summer holiday anthem, and 'Galloping Home' (literally) with the theme to one of the year's most popular TV programmes 'The Adventures of Black Beauty'. An essential addition to any music lover's collection, capturing the spirit of an unforgettable year in music. 'NOW - Yearbook Extra 1974' - a further celebration of the diversity and magic of the year in Pop.
