Release date: 15 March, 2024

NOW Music is proud to present NOW That’s What I Call Jukebox Classics! Immerse yourself in the nostalgia and magic of the '50s and '60s with 100 iconic tracks. This is not just an album; it's a passport to transport you to the golden age of Rock 'n' Roll, Doo-wop and Soul!

Bill Haley & His Comets kick things off with the classic ‘(We're Gonna) Rock Around The Clock.’ Carl Perkins ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ and Elvis Presley follow, inviting you to the ‘Heartbreak Hotel’. The string of iconic tracks continues with ‘Tutti Frutti’, ‘Johnny B Goode’ ‘C’mon Everybody’, ‘Great Balls Of Fire’ and ‘Let’s Twist Again’. The Crystals add a touch of youthful exuberance to the mix with ‘Doo Ron Ron (When He Walked Me Home)’, then it’s time to step onto the dance floor with Little Eva's infectious ‘The Locomotion’. The timeless charm of Fats Domino's ‘Blueberry Hill’ and Buddy Holly & The Cricket’s ‘Heartbeat’ are included in a run of Pop-nostalgia-gold that also features Bobby Darin, Bobby Vee, and Connie Francis before Lesley Gore, with a classic anthem of teenage heartache and rebellion ‘It's My Party’, and more teen-angst from The Shangri-La’s. Slowing things down with The Five Satins and their harmonies ‘In The Still Of The Night’, before Paul Anka wraps up CD 1 with ‘Put Your Head On My Shoulder’.

CD 2 opens with Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons with the infectious ‘Sherry’, then Chris Montez, The Contours and Brian Poole & The Tremeloes will have you belting out their hits with them. Essential ‘60s jukebox gems from Dusty Springfield with ‘I Only Want To Be With You’, and Petula Clark with ‘Downtown’ lead into Roy Orbison’s ‘Oh, Pretty Woman’. Julie London’s ‘Fly Me To The Moon’, delivers Jazz-infused Pop sophistication alongside Etta James and Peggy Lee. The Marvelettes deliver ‘Please Mr. Postman,’ and The Velvelettes ‘He Was Really Sayin’ Somethin’; both Motown marvels that capture the excitement of the new Soul sound and the anticipation of what was coming up on the Jukebox next! Doris Day's ‘Move Over Darling’ adds a touch of playful charm before Conway Twitty wraps up this CD with ‘It's Only Make Believe’. 

Chubby Checker invites you to a ‘Dancin' Party’ to open CD 3, while Jackie Wilson's ‘Reet Petite’ infuses the collection with irresistible energy. Bill Haley & His Comets keep the dance floor alive with ‘Shake, Rattle And Roll’, and Dion’s ‘Runaround Sue’ spins a tale of love and adventure. Del Shannon's ‘Runaway’ then sweeps you into a Pop whirlwind before superb Pop-drama with ‘You Don’t Own Me’, ‘Chapel Of Love’ and ‘I Wish I Were A Princess’. Neil Sedaka's ‘Oh! Carol’ and Paul Anka's ‘Diana’ are legendary smashes of the era, and lead toward a run of Doo-wap classics from The Marcels with ‘Blue Moon,’ The Penguins with ‘Earth Angel (Will You Be Mine)’, plus The Crew Cuts and Bob B. Soxx And The Blue Jeans with ‘Why Do Lovers Break Each Others Hearts?’. The dreamy ‘Johnny Angel’ and the plaintive vocals of Brenda Lee's ‘I'm Sorry’ brings CD 3 to a close.

The timeless ‘True Love Ways’ from Buddy Holly opens the final disc, and a run of massive hits including ‘Cathy’s Clown’, ‘I Fought The Law’, Eddie Cochran's ‘Three Steps To Heaven’ and Cliff Richard's ‘Move It’. Next up, Elvis Presley's unmistakable ‘Hound Dog’ and Chuck Berry's ‘No Particular Place To Go’ remind us why these tracks are legendary. Fats Domino adds his distinctive New Orleans flavour with ‘Ain't That A Shame’ and then The Ronettes take centre stage with ‘Be My Baby’. Betty Everett's sassy ‘The Shoop Shoop Song (It's In His Kiss)’, and The Toys and The Chiffons present the best in Soul-Pop vocals. Carole King’s peerless ‘It Might As Well Rain Until September’ leads to The Mamas & The Papas defining ‘Dedicated To The One I Love’. Winding down toward the close - Pop stories of lost love, ‘The End Of The World’, ‘Sealed With A Kiss’ and ‘The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore’…but it’s The Righteous Brothers bringing the curtain down on this epic collection with the #1 sing-a-long classic ‘You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin’’.

NOW That’s What I Call Jukebox Classics is a celebration of the classics that defined an era when Pop music was moving feet, and hearts were beating in time to the sounds coming from the Jukebox. Grab yours today!
