    Following the fantastic response to ‘NOW Yearbook 1980’ – we are thrilled to present more stellar tracks from the year with ‘NOW – Yearbook Extra 1980’. 
    This limited edition 3CD highlights an additional 66 tracks from the charts of 1980, making it the perfect complement to any Yearbook, 80s pop or NOW music collection.
    The first disc kicks off with two iconic tracks from 1980 films: Queen’s ‘Flash’, and Blondie’s #1 ‘Call Me’, and continues with massive pop hits from The Police with ‘De Do Do Do ,De Da Da Da’, Madness with ‘Embarrassment’, and ‘Army Dreamers’ from Kate Bush. New wave hits from The Clash and Elvis Costello & The Attractions follow, along with U2, Siouxsie And The Banshees, and The Boomtown Rats. Grace Jones’ amazing re-working of the Pretenders’ ‘Private Life’ leads into soul smashes from Roberta Flack feat. Donny Hathaway, George Benson, and ‘I’m Coming Out’ from Diana Ross. Disc One closes with two of the years’ most beautiful songs from Odyssey and Elton John.
    CD2 continues the celebration of this brilliant year in pop with Sheena Easton, Cliff Richard, David Essex and The Nolans – before floor-filling dance smashes from Shalamar, Sister Sledge, Coffee and Change – plus the legendary vocals of Donna Summer and Gladys Knight (& The Pips). The Rock ‘N’ Roll revival was in full swing in 1980 – and is highlighted here with hit tracks from Darts, Matchbox and Shakin’ Stevens. After some easy-pop from Leo Sayer, Barbara Dickson and Dr Hook, Disc Two winds down with two true one-off hits: Sweet People with ‘And The Birds Were Singing’, and the Christmas #1 ‘There’s No-One Quite Like Grandma’ from St Winifred’s School Choir.
    Our final disc opens with the incredible ‘Breathing’ from Kate Bush and continues a theme of unique and original pop with The Cure, John Foxx, Japan, and the chart debut ‘Messages’ from Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark. New wave inspired hits from Roxy Music, The Buggles, Split Enz and Marianne Faithfull are included, before a couple of prog-inspired epic productions – from Rush with ‘The Spirit Of Radio’, and Sky with their Top 5 smash ‘Tocata’ (from their #1 ‘Sky 2’ album). Rock from Judas Priest and Pat Benatar is up next – and the collection finishes with a run of unforgettable pop gems from Dennis Waterman, Chas & Dave and The Barracudas before we sail away with Madness on ‘Night Boat To Cairo’.
    An essential addition to your ‘Yearbook’ collection – celebrating more fabulous moments in pop history!... ‘NOW – Yearbook Extra 1980’.
