I do think they missed an opportunity with Now 100. Would have been good to have had 100 tracks, one track from all previous 99 releases and one new track (not duplicating any artistes). 'Now That's' something I would buy,,,,

Saw the vinyl in Sainsburys if anyone is interested...
Now 1 was initially released on cassette and vinyl only, and not released on CD until the 25th anniversary in 2008. The 2008 release keeps the gatefold sleeve of the original vinyl (but in CD size), unfortunately this re-release ditches it for the usual plastic CD case :-(

Back in the day when the CD was full of tracks we knew and on both sides. There's only 2 I don't recognise by title ( cd no 1 song 4 and cd no 2 song) many classics on here. I had this on vinyl. Also had the other compilation ""HITS" issued around the same time.
I got the original CD re-release about 10 years ago its was almost been given away at £2, they get over £20 now apparently.
Think i still have the original vinyl in the attic
Thanks for posting this. I'll need to buy it. Brings back great memories.

Was only released on cd back in 2009 for the first time, original was cassette or vinyl, cassettes were stuck together rather than one box.

I said the same thing on a different thread yesterday and someone said that they are actually going to be doing that soon.

I agree you would never get such a wide range of genres on one hits album now, brilliant album.

What you really want is Now 4 on CD! I have 1, 10-90 but prices of 8 & 9 on CD are higher than I'm willing to pay (£30 ish) but Now 4 on CD is rare & £300 plus!!!

Aye, they reckon there were only ever five hundred copies on CD as it was new technology at the time
Great stuff! - my first Now was Now 3 (I remember the pig) - copied it from my sister as she'd bought it - result ;-)

Some good track on the original - people laugh at Kajagoogoo, but "Too Shy" is a good song...

Charts today are pants of course - I had to endure the Top 30 a couple of weeks ago driving down the M6 and it was all overly-processed female vocals (Cher started that trend), gangsta R&B crap, nothing with any new melody or anything....useless.

As Jack Dee said, "You know you're getting old when you criticise the music of the generation below yourself"

Heat added for this - duly ordered!

Me too. Not sure it's worth anything though. Mine has been played hundreds of times over the years.

I think it would have been better if it was 'the ones that got away'. Tracks they regret not putting on or did not get permission for at the time. Saves duplication if (like me) you (almost) have the complete set.

Yes, I missed out on that one. Saw it in a local Boyes store, but thought the track listing was poor and not worth the £7.99 they were asking.

Immediately regretted my decision but when I went back it had gone.
This CD proves that there was some crap music out years ago too. It's just not a new phenomenon

They are brining exactly this album soon, 100 tracks taken from all the previous albums. Seen this advertised on the now music app.
Top of the pops was better for album art
Wow! HMV, I thought these guys were dead?
It’s funny but as someone that deals in vinyl for a living original copies of these comps go straight in the pound box. Surely there are more interesting things to reissue. Maybe unreleased tracks or alternate mixes. I just think it’s novelty and cashing in nostalgia. Who actually plays them now?

The thing is the first 6 or so where never released on CD not properly anyway and there are people who have all the CDs. I was surprised to see that you can't just queue up the album on Spotify.

So why didn't they leave it just as latest tracks instead of a disc full of tracks that nobody will play. Terrible marketing!

I've got now 4 on cassette!!! Also got the first 10 vinyl albums too. They were great back in the day.
The latest now - Now 100 - should not be called Now. It should be called 'Now and Then'..

Not sure what association you are intending there. Whats Thierry Henry got to do with the hits album?
