"HITS ALBUMS NOT RELEASED INSTANTLY" SHOCK: There's often curious postings over on Blogcritics, and while we'd not normally miss a chance to join in with kicking major labels, the complaint that Now That's What I Call Music (in the States) features records after they've left the charts just seems to be moaning for the sake of it. Oddly, record labels probably won't release tracks to be compiled by the all-hoovering Now series until they've at least had a decent run of getting a return on them. Good god, rants Chip Ross, there are tracks on Now 17 which came out in June. So, a whole five months ago, eh? It's practically a golden oldie. The other odd thing is that Chip doesn't suggest quite what he expects to be done about this.
