Kim Wilde on ‘Now Yearbook ’80-’84’

After Kim Wilde appeared on recent releases of Now Yearbook 84, Now Yearbook 82 and Now Yearbook 1981, it should be no surprise that she also makes an appearance on the new compilation in the series: ‘Now Yearbook ’80-’84: The Final Chapter’. It seems the campaign of creating compilations of songs from the first half of the Eighties in the style of the series Now That’s What I Call Music is coming to an end with a four disc compilation of ‘the best of the rest’.

The 4CD set is available as a deluxe hardcover casebound book set with a 28-page booklet with track annotations and music quiz laid out in classic ‘eighties’ style. A slightly cheaper non-deluxe in card sleeve is also available. A three LP version on gold-coloured vinyl is also available.

You can pre-order the deluxe edition CD here, the gold vinyl 3LP here and the standard 4CD here.
