The Yearbook series are 4-CD and 3-LP vinyl sets, each representing a year of music, which launched in June 2021. Each release has a tie-in block of programming on Now 80s. Each release is issued as a limited edition mini-hardback book, with the CDs in sleeves forming the pages of the 'yearbook' which contains an introductory overview of the year, original 7" single artwork, trivia, chart positions and a quiz. The limited edition 3-LP version is released on bright coloured vinyl. A standard 4-CD version is also issued in a gatefold "wallet" design, which retails cheaper than the mini-hardback books. The first collection focuses on hits from 1983, the birth year of the Now That's What I Call Music series. The year 1984 followed, but after this, the series rewound its year of focus, issuing collections that went from 1982 and backwards into the late 1970s. A triple-CD only release, Yearbook Extra: The Collectors Edition, is issued a few weeks later; these include lesser known tracks and more songs by big artists included on the main album and they are released only in standard gatefold wallet packaging. A further release, The Final Chapter, a deluxe 4-CD and 3-LP set, was issued in December 2022, rounding off the Yearbook years 1980 to 1984. The same month, a deluxe 5-LP boxset, Now Yearbook '80 - '84: Vinyl Extra, was released. This was the first time tracks from the Extra CD series had been issued on the vinyl format.
CD3 opens with a celebration of British love songs with Ed Sheeran, James Blunt, Lewis Capaldi, Take That and Wet Wet Wet before moving into feel-good Pop classics from Spice Girls, Girls Aloud, Little Mix and One Direction. Legends Cilla Black, Dusty Springfield, Sandie Shaw and Sonny And Cher keep the Pop flowing 60s-style, before rounding off the disc with Reggae standards from Desmond Dekker & The Aces, Althea & Donna and UB40.
