Gold was originally issued as the same 2 cd set Love & Affection Joan Armatrading Classics 1975-1983 in 2003 by a&m as part of the chronicles series. Remastered & all. In 2005 it was reissued again by a&m universal as part of the Gold collection series. Sames songs & booklet packaging except diff cover art. For some reason a&m again leaves off tracks from her 1st '72 lp Whatever's For Us and 4 of her '80s lp's (Secret Secret's-Shouting Stage-Sleight Of Hand-Hearts & Flowers and from-'90 her last a&m album Square The Circle. Overall all the great songs are here and believe me if you are a fan you know them. If you are a new comer to JA then this is a great large scale retro to begin with. The remastering is good. Maybe a&m will release a follow up of her works from '83-'90 to bridge the gap. I don't know how much control JA has over these a&m releases, any for that matter but 2 mega songs KIND WORDS & TEMPTATION both appeared on her Track Record, Classics & Greatest Hits a&m cd's and both are missing here so this is the downside to this GREAT Set. Get it the best cd retro so far.
