I own all (except for 15 randomly) of the Now CDs from 8 to 70. Haven't been bothered to update my collection to the more recent ones but will at some point I'm sure!

I think it's worth a few quid actually - I paid £45 for 8 and 9 about 10 years ago and I think they're the earliest. 4 was released on CD as a one off but these are few and far between and I've only ever seen one that sold for £300 :shock:

Downside is that most of these I've collected as they were released and used as "normal" CDs so there's wear and tear / scratches on some but I probably wouldn't sell anyway.

Also got the millenium series released in 2000 which is a double CD for each year 1980-1999 and the spines when all together spell out something or other. These are pretty rare...

Anyone remember Judgement Night album?
It was a crossover album with both a rapper or hiphop artist(s) and a metal band covering each song. You can't get it on itunes which pisses me off as I would love to own it again. :(

I do indeed - it was re-released on vinyl a couple of years ago.

Yeah, I remember it. Had the likes of Faith No More, Slayer, Pearl Jam and Cypress Hill. Quite a good film back at the time as well.

They did a similar thing with the Spawn soundtrack where they had the likes of Metallica with DJ Spooky and Korn with The Dust Brothers.

It was very different - but I like them both... worth checking out if you like Judgement Night, definitely.

Slayer appear on both, and provide the winning track on each 8)

I watched the film quite recently, which prompted me to buy the soundtrack (again, had it years ago) on CD, was pretty cheap on Amazon.

I think for the 100 album, they should do a double including the original now that's what I call music album .
A bit like retrogamer 100 which gave away a free no1 mag.
ATARI....There can be only one !!!!!!!

Somehow only just saw this.

For Spawn I would say Marilyn Manson and the Sneaker Pimps was the best song myself.
