That's a brilliant tracklist! My only problem is that I think there are too many spin-off releases from the main series as it is. In the early days you would have had a couple of dance collections with extended mixes and the occasional other releases such as Now Christmas and Now Summer. There seems to be a new title every couple of weeks these days and half of those are titles which were previously released but with a few different tracks included.

A lot of these of course they couldn't licence, because the labels gave the exclusive to the Hits series instead

Thanks Shaky Fan! You're right, far too many spin off releases, and more often than not, it's the same songs being used again and again but in different orders.

That's very true AcerBen, and that's why I was forced to buy the Hits series as a "backup" if you like!

Quite right Hadji, it was completely my mistake, upon checking again I realised the track I meant to type was Crashed The Wedding, which was also a number 1 hit for Busted!
