Four CD set. Now Yearbook presents a stellar selection of 1983's biggest and best hits... 80 huge chart hits from the year, alongside enduring and well-loved classics. 1983 saw British artists achieving unprecedented success across the world with 'Every Breath You Take' from The Police being the year's biggest seller in the U.S., and 'Karma Chameleon' from Culture Club being the top seller in the U.K. Breakthrough acts, achieving their first big hits - all here - include a staggering line-up of future superstars: U2, Eurythmics, Wham!, Paul Young, The Style Council, Marillion and Thompson Twins, to name a few. 1983 also saw a number of artists who had seen previous releases on the fringes of the chart achieve mainstream success including The Cure and Echo And The Bunnymen, and former punk and new-wave chart regulars saw renewed success including Siouxsie And The Banshees, The Stranglers, Public Image Limited, and Elvis Costello. Synth Pop continued to dominate and Howard Jones, Tears For Fears, The Human League, Heaven 17 and Simple Minds all enjoyed a hit packed year... alongside electro-dance smashes from Freeez, Malcolm McLaren, Rock Steady Crew and Laura Branigan... whilst New Order delivered a genre defining classic and a truly iconic 12" single. NOW Yearbook 1983: 80 songs that reflect the charts in the year that NOW began... and celebrates the diversity of those charts - from the huge hits that are still played on the radio today alongside lesser compiled but equally cherished tracks.

For a mass media giant like Now on Sony Music I’d expect a playable LP.
The quality of this is bloody atrocious!
I appreciate it’s colour vinyl and that’s not the best for quality but this is appalling, there were chunks if plastic stuck to to surface, it jumps, pops, cracks, skips, you name anything bad about a vinyl lo and this does it!
I have albums actually from 1983 that are 100% better.
Unless you’re a girrrrl fan of Now that’s what I call anything just don’t bother!
I've kept it, as I'm a keen collector on this compilation series. I
Owning a real record, reading the content on the cover while listening to the album is part of the experience. This when opened is such a disappointment. I have every Now album available on vinyl and CD and never before with the exception of the rerelease of Now 1 on CD have I been so disappointed.
This in my opinion is a missed opportunity to create a start of a collectors edition for each year, one where you would want to own them all!
10/10 for music content and 1 / 10 for packaging.
