Now That's What I Call Music 1 Re-Released on CD

Do you remember when Now That's What I Call Music Vol 1 came out? I was a spotty school kid who had just sold his music collection to raise money to try and save my school from closure, so the teachers bought me NOW 1 as a thank you.

Twenty five years later the NOW collection is still going and the original has been re-released on CD. The original came out on 10th December 1983 and sold 900,000 copies with the series selling over 75m in the UK and Ireland.

I think I'll be ordering mine from HMV, just to have a blast from the past and enjoy the cheesy 80's hits all over again............. (alas my school closed a few years after I left!)
