Silly asking prices, I wouldn't pay a cent for this. The copy submitted on the database appears to have early rot. I wouldn't be surprised if most copies of this dies from rot within the next 5-10 years.

Copies sure love to change ownership. I've seen some CDs that probably had similar print run almost never appear for sale. (I'm talking about the French Eurodance singles released on Airplay, Panic, Flarenasch etc.)

Originally released as an LP/MC version: 26/11/1984. Maybe, the most 'out of the box' tracklist of a Now volume .... ever! Although containing, only, one UK chart-topper ('Hello' - Lionel Richie), it includes some of the most, surprisingly, memorable alternative hits of the mid-'80s: 'East of Eden' - Big Country, 'Pride' - U2, 'Listen to your father' - Feargal Sharkey, 'Tesla girls' - OMD, 'Sexcrime' - Eurythmics, 'Madam Butterfly' - M. McLaren, 'Sunset now' - Heaven 17, 'Shout to the top' - The Style Council etc. More alternative pop-oriented than mainstream, it is one of the most upbeat and interesting 'Now that's what I call music' volumes - the only drawback is that the creative department should do something about the fact that you need a magnifying glass in order to read the track information of the gatefold sleeve.

The 2CD version of Now 4 was released today. I have done a comparison with it and my original LP & CD. Here are the differences - some more obvious than others. If you notice anything else, please feel free to add.

Nick Heyward - Warning Sign (Now 4 LP has the 7" mix which contains two raps - at 2:07 and 2:55. This slightly shorter version doesn't)
Culture Club - The War Song (Album version used instead of 7" mix which was on Now 4 LP & original CD)
Style Council - Shout To The Top (Matches the mix used on The Singular Adventures Of which runs very slightly longer than the one used on Now 4 LP & original CD)
Thompson Twins - Doctor Doctor (Album version used. On the Now 4 LP & original CD it ran about 10 seconds shorter - possibly video version)
The Kane Gang - Respect Yourself (Album version used instead of 7" mix which was on Now 4 LP. Very obvious - 1 min 45 secs longer)
Big Country - East Of Eden (7" mix included here. The version on the original Now 4 remains unique - at 3:35 an extra chorus is sung instead of the instrumental break)
Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark - Tesla Girls (Compilation version used - as on 1988's Best Of OMD. About 8 seconds longer than 7" edit on Now 4 LP)
Kim Wilde - The Second Time (Album version used instead of 7" mix which was on Now 4 LP. Quite a different beginning)
Eugene Wilde - Gotta Get You Home Tonight (Album version used instead of 7" mix which was on Now 4 LP. Very obvious - 1 min 45 secs longer)

It's good to see that the original CD should remain sought after given that it contains correct versions of three of the above tracks.

I think that it's a scam of the label that re-pressing this CD. They bought all the 2nd hard copies and selling it here for high price to make people to buy the new release. Except for that it's noting special in this CD and I'll not buy it even for 1$

Most reference and history said Now 8 was the first one to be relessed on CD but Now 4 was the first CD to be released but not commercially produced.

trouble is like most very old discs (last a life time..mmm.....) this unfortunately was printed on the old Nimbus CD's and they used some dodgy lacquar right up to 1988 they went sticky getting a finger prints on these and wiping them away was a nightmare if not careful the whole top layer print would come away as an avid CD collector with experience with many types of pressings.

although not as bad as PDO they remedied this with a better formulation in the very late 80's and early 90's
when I was buying CD's I always hoped for DADC or Disctronics pressing back in the day ;)

There's probably some unique mixes of this that aren't available on other cds.

Apparently there was only around 500 copies of Now 4 manufactured on the new (at the time) Compact Disc format.

Excellent collection, but why did they use the horrible dance version of Paul McCartney's "No More Lonely Nights" instead of the beautiful ballad version on the single?
