NOW Music are excited to present NOW That’s What I Call 12” 70s – a 4CD collection of 42 12” and extended versions of some of the most defining and enduring tracks from some of the most memorable artists of the era.

CD1 kicks off with a host of superstars: Elton John and the original 1979 12” version of ‘Are You Ready For Love’ – followed by the long version of ‘Goodnight Tonight’ from Wings – and the 7 minute version of the #1 ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ from Cliff Richard. Blondie’s #1 ‘Heart Of Glass’ is up next in its’ extended version, along with synth driven smashes from Roxy Music, Japan, M, and The Flying Lizards. Closing Disc 1 with some classic New Wave 12” versions from Lene Lovich, Public Image Limited, the #1 ‘Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick’ from Ian Dury & The Blockheads – and the stunning full length version of ‘Rock Lobster’ from The B-52’s.

Electronic Disco opens Disc 2, with the superb long version of ‘Beat The Clock’ from Sparks, Cerrone’s ground-breaking ‘Supernature’ and dance-floor smash ‘From East To West’ by Voyage. The iconic ‘Spacer’ from Sheila & B Devotion appears here in it’s Tom Moulton mix and is joined by extended pop gems from Boney M., Eruption, Leif Garrett and The Three Degrees. Closing this disc – two space-age disco-pop classics: Dee D. Jackson’s ‘Automatic Lover’ and some ‘Galactic Funk’ from Meco with ‘Star Wars Theme/Cantina Band’ – available here in its 7.35 12” version, originally released as a DJ-only promo.

Discs 3 and 4 celebrate the rich legacy of 1970’s disco. Massive hits from Earth, Wind & Fire With The Emotions, McFadden & Whitehead and Heatwave feature alongside the extended version of Yvonne Elliman’s ‘Saturday Night Fever’ classic ‘If I Can’t Have You’ – and Odyssey’s sublime ‘Native New Yorker’. Huge club tracks from Dan Hartman and Grace Jones lead into the captivating ‘Like An Eagle’ from Dennis Parker, and Cher literally takes Disc 3 home with her 1979 12” smash.

At over 17 minutes, the 12” version of Donna Summer’s ‘Macarthur Park Suite’ is still stunning and is followed by floor-filling gold from The Trammps with the full version of ‘Disco Inferno’, the sophistication of Chic, Amii Stewart’s ‘Light My Fire / 137 Disco Heaven’, plus Frantique and Vicki Sue Robinson. The collection closes with three of the greatest anthems to evolve from the collision of amazing Soul vocals and a Disco dance-floor: Diana Ross with the 12” Version of ‘Love Hangover’, Gloria Gaynor’s timeless ‘I Will Survive’, and signing off with ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’ with the legendary vocals of Thelma Houston.
