Now That's What I Call Music 4 or Now 4 was released in 1984. The album is the fourth edition of the (UK) Now! series. This album reached number two on the UK Albums Chart, kept off the top by the newly premiering Hits album series. This volume marked the first Now album to be released on Compact Disc. It was seemingly a test run as the single-CD contained a selection of tracks from Now 2, Now 3 and Now 4, collecting 15 tracks altogether. It wasn't until two years later in 1986 that a Now compilation was again released on CD, with a single-CD issue of Now 8.[1]

The Now 4 CD is extremely collectable and with the item being so rare, it can frequently attract bids of up to five hundred pounds on internet auction sites.[citation needed]

The track listing shown is for the vinyl and audio cassette releases.
