3.0 out of 5 stars Too Up-to-Date, 29 July 2012
By 
This review is from: Now That's What I Call a No. 1 (Audio CD)
Obviously they want to sell lots of copies so this compilation is focused post 2000 however where are the biggest number one acts of all time? Where are The Beatles, Madge and dare I say it Westlife?
Still worth 3 stars because there some good tracks in there despite the disappointment of so many missing.

Although Westlife have had 14 UK No.1 Hits, they were never a really
huge selling Singles Act. Despite 25 Top 10 Hits, they are not even in
the Top 30 Best Selling UK Singles Acts. They are 34th, with around
6,820,000 Sales. Pretty poor for so many No.1's etc. (10 of their 14
No.1's were only there for 1 Week).
Cliff Richard has none of his 14 UK No.1's included, & he is the 3rd Best
selling UK Singles Act, with 21,500,000 Sales. I'm not sure why Cliff has
been excluded from this Compilation.
The Beatles are not in this Triple CD 'Set' because their Record Company
refuses to allow Beatles Hits to be added to Various Artist Compilations. Of
course The Beatles would have had a Track included had this not been the
case. After all, they had 17 UK No.1 Hits. They are the UK's Best Selling
Singles Act, with 21,900,000 Sales. (Elvis Presley is 2nd - 21,600,000).
I believe that the Rolling Stones also do not allow their Hits to be added to
Various Artist Compilations. That's why none of their 8 UK No.1's are included.
I've no idea why none of Madonna's 13 No.1 Hits were not included. Maybe
she refused permission. I don't know.

Of course it's all got to do with rights,contracts etc etc.
I'm in my 60's and have of late been getting many of the compilations of the late 50's and mainly 60's and early 70's.
But, this one seems to have a fairly good mix of later popular tracks and I think quite good value,even at my age!

The Beatles appeared on Now That's What I Call Music: The Summer Album back in July 1986 [All You Need Is Love and Here Comes The Sun]. The Rolling Stones appeared on two volumes [Now 2 - Undercover Of The Night, Now 29 - Love Is Strong]. Madonna has already been on a couple of spin-offs [Now That's What I Call The '00s - Hung Up, Now That's What I Call 30 Years - Into The Groove] but never the main series.
