Now That’s What I Call Music 3

Here we go, get ready for the third incarnation of the sumptuous series.

Released in the summer – possibly a quiet period for music releases, Now 3 contributed to the Now That’s What I Call Music series building up a serious head of steam.  This one features some of the real big hitters of the time, with the likes of Duran Duran, FGTH and Queen to name but three.  As with the two previous releases, format were limited to vinyl and cassette.  Will someone please invent the CD and a suitable player?
