Now That’s What They Call Music

Elton John began his career playing covers of current hits for albums filled with covers of current hits. One stop shopping which were  the ancestors of Now That’s What I Call Music.


The Now! series originated with Vigin records in 1983 (US is up to # 32, UK #69) realized if they ponied up royalties to artists whose albums had just fallen off the charts, said artists would give em copywrite to release and everybody would make a ton.


Hugely succesful, Now! is now available in just about every country in the world.


Though Itunes might seem to have had the potentially to kill Now! it hasn’t and the reason is simple.21 hit songs for a $1.29 each comes to $27.09  and Now!  $32 retails for $15ish is currently at #5 on the Billboard 200.
