Gold: Greatest Hits

  (Redirected from Gold: Greatest Hits (ABBA album))

Gold: Greatest Hits is a compilation album by the Swedish pop group ABBA. It was released on 21 September 1992 through PolyGram and released in 2008 Universal Music Australia, making it the first compilation to be released after the company had acquired Polar Music, and thus the rights to the ABBA back catalogue.

With sales of 30 million,[2] Gold is the best-selling ABBA album, as well as one of the best-selling albums worldwide. Since 1992, it has been re-released several times, most notably in 2008 to coincide with the release of the film Mamma Mia!, and most recently in 2014 to mark the group's 40th Anniversary of winning the Eurovision Song Contest.

Contents

OverviewEdit

Prior to its release, all previously released ABBA compilations had been deleted and only the original studio albums (along with the 1986 live album) remained in print. Gold: Greatest Hits was well received by the music-buying public, and went on to be one of the best-selling albums of all time.

Gold: Greatest Hits has been re-released in various "special" or "remastered" releases:

Year Edition Notes
1992 Original release The original 1992 release included an edited version of "Voulez-Vous" and the US Promo Edit of "The Name of the Game."
1999 Remastered re-release Celebrating ABBA's 25th anniversary of winning the Eurovision Song Contest with "Waterloo", includes the original versions of Voulez-Vous and The Name of the Game. This new version was called the "signature series", as it came with autographs from the band members embedded into the front plastic casing in gold writing. This edition also contains new sleeve notes and is digitally remastered in 24 bit from the original multitracks.
2002 10th Anniversary Edition Contained a revised booklet and updated liner notes. The ABBA logo was changed to the official ABBA font and the back cover was redesigned. It was released in Europe and New Zealand (with the European track list, and not the previous Australasian track list). This version was not released in Australia.
2008 Second remastered edition Coinciding with the release of the film Mamma Mia!, in a so-called super jewel case, with updated liner notes and with remastered sound (using the remasters for The Complete Studio Recordings). The Australasian release featured the European track list, not the Australasian track list on previous issues. This version was issued in the US in 2010, although it does not come in a super jewel case, but instead a regular jewel case.
2010 Special Edition Included two discs: the original CD (using the 2008 remasters), and a DVD of the video clips, remastered in 2010. The DVD also included five bonus clips.
2014 40th Anniversary Edition A 3 CD edition which includes the original album (disc 1), the More Gold: More Hits album (disc 2) and the "Golden B-sides" (disc 3), containing twenty b-sides.

Regional variations and tie-insEdit

Australasian editionsEdit

The 1992 and 1999 editions released in Australia and New Zealand (and some other territories in that area) had a modified track listing (see below) to include three local hits, replacing three other songs on the international edition.

The 2002 re-release was not released in Australia, while in New Zealand, the international edition was issued.

From 2008 onwards, only the international editions have been released in Australia and New Zealand.

Spanish versionsEdit

The original 1992 release had a slightly different track listing, replacing the English versions of Chiquitita and Fernando with the Spanish language versions.

Shortly after the release of Gold: Greatest Hits, a Spanish version of the album, titled Oro: Grandes Exitos was issued, followed later by Mas Oro: Mas Grandes Exitos.

Video and DVDEdit

In 1992 a VHS video was released which included all tracks from the original album. During the 1990s, various regional variations on this video were issued, until Universal Music decided in 2003 to re-issue the video on VHS and DVD. The track listing was similar to the original album, with some added content: a 25-minute documentary produced in 1999, and the 1992 video of Dancing Queen. In 2010, the DVD was remastered with six bonus clips, including five "split-screen" versions of the clips to show which improvements were made by remastering the old videos. These "split-screen" clips were Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!, Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen, The Winner Takes It All and Money, Money, Money. The sixth bonus clip was an Australian cartoon version of Money, Money, Money. The 2010 edition did not include the 2003 Abba documentary or the 1992 version of Dancing Queen. This disk was available as a stand-alone DVD and as part of the 2010 'Special Edition' re-release.

Other variationsEdit

In 2002, Gold: Greatest Hits was released in mainland Europe (though not in the UK) with a bonus second disc. This included the following tracks:

No.TitleLength
1."Summer Night City" 
2."Angeleyes" 
3."The Day Before You Came" 
4."Eagle" 
5."I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do" 
6."So Long" 
7."Honey, Honey" 
8."The Visitors" 
9."Ring Ring" 
10."When I Kissed the Teacher" 
11."The Way Old Friends Do" 

The UK saw a 30th Anniversary Edition released in 2004 with a gold-coloured sleeve cover rather than the normal black sleeve. The original release included a DVD with 18 of the 19 songs from the CD, excluding "The Name of the Game". It was available also without the DVD.

Commercial performanceEdit

The album topped the UK Albums Chart on five separate occasions over sixteen years, first in 1992, then three times in 1999, and then again in 2008. Gold: Greatest Hits is the second highest selling album of all time in the United Kingdom (after Queen's Greatest Hits), with sales of over 5.3 million copies.[3] In the United States, the album has sold a total of 5.8 million copies and is the nineteenth biggest-selling greatest-hits album in the Nielsen Music era (which began in 1991).[4][5]

In Germany, Gold: Greatest Hits has been certified five times Platinum for shipment of 2.5 million units.[6] It has also been certified 10 times Platinum in Switzerland for sales of 500,000 units.[7] In Austria, the album charted for 397 weeks, making it the all-time 2nd longest stay on the chart [8]. After reaching catalogue status, it returned to the top 10 three times, twice in the wake of the releases of Mamma Mia! The Movie Soundtrack and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again and once due to the release of a special edition [9]. In Sweden the album is listed as the sixth best-charting album as of October 2016.[10] In Austria, the album is the fourth best selling album of all time.[11] In Australia, the album is the third or fourth best selling album of all time.[12]

Critical receptionEdit

Gold: Greatest Hits has been called one of the most influential compilation albums ever released. Music critic Elisabeth Vincentelli (New York Post; Time Out New York) credits the album for a critical revival of interest in ABBA's music after ten years of neglect following the band's 1982 break-up.[13]

Former Rolling Stone magazine writer Tom Moon included Gold: Greatest Hits among his 1,000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die, describing the tracks as "models of impeccable craft", adding that the album is "an excellent starter kit for those wanting to investigate the DNA of post-Beatles pop."[14]

Track listingsEdit

Gold: Greatest Hits includes "Lay All Your Love on Me", which was a Top 10 hit only in the UK and Ireland, and "Thank You for the Music", which only had a limited release as a single. Only the Australasian release of the album (until 2008) included "I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do", which was a successful global hit for ABBA (except in the UK and Ireland). It does not feature "Summer Night City" which was a bigger hit globally than "Voulez-Vous" which was included.
