I'm shocked how few duds there are over four discs stuffed with music- absolutely phenomenal value for money. Limited edition 3CD collection featuring an additional 67 tracks from the charts of 1979, making it the perfect complement to any Yearbook, '70s pop or NOW music collection.

It's amazing how many great songs came out in 1979, the music business was clearly a different beast back then. Some great little gems on hear and loving listening to it, bring back some great memories from that time. Would need to manually rip most of the tracks from my vinyl and CD collection as I don’t already have them saved as MP3s. The version of Goin’ Home by The Osmonds in your Spotify playlist is the album cut from The Plan and not the original single version as on the MGM single. If there is a certificate we’ve missed out on then it’s probably for a 50 metre swim badge at the local swimming baths.was incredibly rich for classic hit singles, and CD2 opens with a breath-taking sequence of punk and new wave classics including ‘The Sound Of The Suburbs’ from The Members, ‘Babylon’s Burning’ from The Ruts along with The Jam, The Clash, The Stranglers, Siouxsie And The Banshees and Sex Pistols. in 1977) and Impulsive Music(in 1977) recording of: Just the Way You Are ( Billy Joel song) lyricist and composer: Billy Joel publisher: April Music Inc.

NOW – Yearbook 1979 – A celebration of the diversity of the charts, and the creative brilliance of the year in pop.This triple-disc package features 67 hits from 1979 and includes a decent selection of big names and some less predictable offerings. Disc 2 opens with three Ska/Pop crossover hits from Madness, The Selecter and The Specials, leading into sublime ‘Lovers-Rock’ from Janet Kay with ‘Silly Games’, before taking in some Classic Rock including Meat Loaf, Electric Light Orchestra and the collaboration between Gary Moore and Phil Lynott. in 1978) recorded at: Chipping Norton Recording Studios in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, England, United Kingdom(in 1978-05) and Roundhouse Studios in London ( Greater London), England, United Kingdom(in 1978-05) mixed at: Roundhouse Studios in London ( Greater London), England, United Kingdom(in 1978-07) recording of: Mirrors lyricist and composer: Sally Oldfield publisher: Betterbron Music Ltd.

the first of the aforementioned two chart-toppers for Gary Numan in 1979 – and closing with ‘Video Killed The Radio Star’ by The Buggles. This track was co-written, produced and performed by Trevor Horn whose work would define the Pop landscape over the next few years – whilst the song would be the first to be played on MTV in the US when it launched in 1981. Their announcement says “As we move forward to the second half of the 1980s, and we were delighted with the response to the 1979 edition back in September.Life in Tokyo by Japan and Electricity from Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark hint at the electronic wave that was starting to crash into the charts, heralding the eventual new romantic movement that followed over the next few years. The standout track here the live version of Them Heavy People by Kate Bush,- possibly on CD for the first time in it's single version edit format. in 2001) recorded at: The Record Plant ( New York) in Midtown Manhattan, New York, New York, United States(from 1978-06 until 1978-07) mixed at: Forum Studio ( recording and mixing studio, located in Covington, Kentucky, USA) in Covington, Kentucky, United States recording of: Sunday Girl(from 1978-06 until 1978-07) lyricist and composer: Chris Stein publisher: Chrysalis Music ( music publisher, ASCAP-affiliated)(ended), Monster Island Music Publishing Corporation(ended), BMG Monarch, Chrysalis Music Ltd. company and copyright holder, do not use as an imprint or release label)(in 1979, in 2011) and Raincloud Productions Ltd. So yes – availability on Spotify is the primary criteria here and I have a strong preference for single mixes.

The main collection and now this “extra” companion compilation, collect some of the essential singles from the year, along with some less obvious (and sometimes skippable) tracks to highlight the diversity of the charts in 1979. NOW Music is thrilled to present more stellar tracks from the year with ‘NOW – Yearbook Extra 1979’.Whether they needed to do that is up for debate, but the fact they’ve bothered does rather suggest their will be more Yearbooks for the 1970s. To be fair, the platform has improved a lot in recent years so most of what I want to include is available. Radio friendly rock-pop from Toto, Thin Lizzy and Status Quo lead into some of the years’ quirkier hits from Driver 67, BA Robertson and Cats U.
