"Now That's What I Call Music 4" or "Now 4" was released in 1984. The album is the 4th edition of the (UK) Now! series. This album reached #2 on the UK Albums Chart, kept off the top by the newly premiering Hits album series.

Also notable is that 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 next released on CD, with a single-CD issue of "Now 8". [http://www.ukcollectibles.co.uk/nowthatswhaticallmusiccds.htm]

The "Now 4" CD is now extremely collectable and with the item being so rare, it can frequently attract bids of up to five hundred pounds on internet auction sites as fans complete their "Now" CD collections. Fact|date=August 2008
