NOW Music is proud to present the next instalment in our ongoing 'Yearbook' series, NOW - Yearbook 1978; 85 tracks from a magical year in Pop! Opening with the epic 'Mr. Blue Sky' from Electric Light Orchestra, the timeless 'Baker Street' from Gerry Rafferty, and Rod Stewart's massive #1 'Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?' More #1s follow from ABBA with the brilliant Pop of 'Take A Chance On Me' and 1978's biggest selling single, 'Rivers Of Babylon' from Boney M. Pop-Reggae chart-toppers from 10cc and Althea & Donna are up next, before a run of dancefloor fillers including 'I'm Every Woman' from Chaka Khan, and Donna Summer's incredible version of 'Macarthur Park', before a couple of Soul ballads from Rose Royce and the huge #1 'Three Times A Lady' from Commodores. The first disc draws to a close with a stack of Pop classics from Marshall Hain, Clout, Bonnie Tyler and Suzi Quatro and Wings, before the peerless 'The Man With The Child In His Eyes' from Kate Bush. The second disc pays tribute to the incredible line-up of artists in the charts of 1978 with their roots in Punk and beginning the burgeoning New Wave movement, kicking off here with the stunning #1 'Rat Trap' from The Boomtown Rats, the era-defining 'Teenage Kicks' from The Undertones, 'Ever Fallen In Love...' from Buzzcocks, and 'Hanging On The Telephone' from Blondie, alongside classic singles from Siouxsie And The Banshees, The Rezillos, The Clash, The Jam, Elvis Costello & The Attractions, and Ian Dury & The Blockheads... and US New Wave saw Patti Smith and The Cars score huge hits. The remainder of Disc 2 features some of the year's biggest Pop-Rock songs including hits from Billy Joel, The Who, Elton John, and Justin Hayward's 'Forever Autumn' from the massive 'Jeff Wayne's Musical Version Of The War Of The Worlds' album.
