The two-CD reissue of Now That’s What I Call Music 8 will not be missing any songs, if an image posted on the Amazon in the UK proves correct.
All 32 ‘top chart hits’ look to be present and correct, and indeed for once we appear to have advance notice of at least some of the versions or mixes on this CD reissue since they are specifically mentioned on the rear artwork.
For example, we know that Duran Duran’s ‘Notorious’ is the ‘single mix’, Steve Winwood’s ‘Higher Love’ is the ‘single version’ and Debbie Harry’s ‘French Kissin’ (In The USA)’ is the ‘edit’. How accurate these will prove to be and whether they are consistent with the original Now 8 remains to be seen. The Pet Shop Boys ‘Suburbia’ single was definitely a remix for example, but that isn’t mentioned on the artwork for this forthcoming compilation.
The two-CD reissue of Now That’s What I Call Music 8 is released on 26 March 2021.
