Was this compilation ever issued on CD? I have some later Now Dance CDs with well chosen extended versions.

Now’s first release of 1985 was not what we expected. With the spring’s big tunes carved up by Hits 2 and Out Now!, EMI decided on a spin-off of extended dance versions. While there’s no doubt that the single edits of some of these tracks would have made Now 5 if it came out three or four months earlier, there’s a definite underground feel to many of these choices – many of whom were successes on the Record Mirror and Music Week disco charts rather than for the standard Gallup listing. This is a good thing as it showed that the brand creators were not afraid to diversify.

Now Dance – The 12″ Mixes entered the album charts on 1 June. It includes extended versions of two number ones – Easy Lover and Move Closer. The 7″ versions of this pair had already featured on Hits 2 and Out Now! The front and back sleeve feature shots of a sleeping beauty with the captions “2 hours of wicked mixes to keep you moving all night long” and “The album you’ve been dreaming of.”
