Now (1982) is the debut album by American ambient musician Steve Roach. During the time that this album was recorded, Roach performed frequent live concerts. Often immediately after these performances he would return to his home studio to record his newly inspired material. Many of the tracks on this album were created in this manner.
Most of the tracks on this album are fast paced pieces recorded with a complex array of analog sequencers, in a fashion inspired by the Berlin School of electronic music and innovative production techniques. There is one textural ambient piece titled "Cloud Motion".
In 1992 Now was rereleased with Roach's second album Traveler as Now / Traveler.
Now (styled as NOW), also known as Now Magazine, is a free alternative weekly newspaper in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
It was first printed on September 10, 1981 by Michael Hollett and Alice Klein. Now is an alternative weekly mixing arts and entertainment news with political coverage. Editorially, it strongly favours the New Democratic Party (NDP) politically.
Independent and privately owned by Hollett and Klein, Now is published 52 times a year. The publication can be picked up in cafes, variety stores, clothing outlets, restaurants, alternative movie venues and in its green and red newspaper boxes. Now is published every Thursday.
Now has been online since 1993, first as now.com and then as nowtoronto.com since 2000. The Now site hosts a video channel, NowTube, daily blog postings, and podcasts. In August 2009 Now launched its first smartphone application, a restaurant guide based on the publication’s N rating system. Other applications are in development.
The Toronto Star launched Eye Weekly in 1991 as a competitor to Now, although Now consistently remained the more widely read publication and Eye Weekly folded in 2011.

Now is the third album released by The Tubes. It was produced by John Anthony. Fed up with constant meddling from Bud Scoppa and Don Wood under the direction of Bill Spooner including surreptitiously remixing a track when John was not at the studio, John Anthony was advised to quit the project by Jerry Moss. Head of A&M A&R Kip Cohen said they took advantage of John and believed they overran the budget to bump up their union fees. Bill Spooner took over and completed the project with the help of engineer Don Wood and Bud Scoppa. John believes in retrospect he should not have tried to be "one of the boys" with this band but remains proud of his idea to get the band playing again live in the studio liked they used to do in the Bay Area bars. "My Head Is My Only House Unless It Rains" is a firm Anthony favourite and sonically shows what he was trying to achieve.
Now features a cover version of Captain Beefheart's "My Head Is My Only House Unless It Rains" and Captain Beefheart also played saxophone on "Cathy's Clone". The project was intended to be a double album but delays lead to cutting several songs including a version of Gene Pitney's "Town Without Pity" complete with horn arrangement by Bay-area comedian/musician, Dick Bright. The cover of Now was drawn by Tubes drummer, Prairie Prince entitled "Tubes Descending a Staircase", and was inspired by a similar drawing in Time magazine of the Ramones. In an A&M leaflet, they described the album as "This outrageous and zany band have developed musically and visually since their inception in San Francisco and their previous albums".

Now is the third studio album by American recording artist Maxwell, released August 14, 2001 on Columbia Records in the United States. Following the lukewarm radio success of his previous album Embrya (1998), Maxwell felt more comfortable with his artistic direction for Now, which does not exhibit his previous work's conceptual style.
The album sold over 296,000 units in the U.S. in the first week, according to SoundScan, to earn him his first-ever number one album. Nows second single " This Woman's Work", a live staple of Maxwell's, charted at number 58 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at number 16 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
Despite some criticism towards Maxwell's songwriting, Now received generally positive reviews from music critics, based on an aggregate score of 78/100 from Metacritic. The album serves as Maxwell's last release before an eight-year hiatus, which culminated in the release of his fourth studio album BLACKsummers'night (2009).

Following the departure of both Ciaran Bourke and Ronnie Drew in 1974, singer/guitarist Jim McCann joined Barney McKenna, Luke Kelly and John Sheahan as a member of The Dubliners to record this album, which Sheahan himself produced. The slight shift in personnel produced a more mellow sound. Arguably, McCann's greatest contribution to the album is the ballad "Carrickfergus", which became one of his most popular and requested songs. It also features a wonderful rendition of the English ballad, " The Unquiet Grave", performed by Luke Kelly.
