Now Yearbook Extra Plus

The Now Yearbook series has been a most welcome development. The Extra volumes are a further added bonus of triple CD goodness. The purpose of this page is to showcase my mop-up Extra Plus editions. These are virtual double CD compilations of tracks that missed out on both the Yearbook & Extra releases. They just exist as Spotify playlists with the usual caveats re 7″ mixes. I’ll be adding them for each year in tandem with the Now team’s release schedule. Feel free to add suggestions for any songs I may have overlooked.
