Collectors Gold


Collectors Gold
4.5 / 5
Released: 1991/08 by BMG
A nice 3CD set with outtakes from the 60's, both studio and "Hollywood", and a live CD with Las Vegas 1969.


Buy at Amazon.co.uk

This must be one of my all-time favourate cd sets ever! I remember first buying it and then rushing home to play it on my cd player. Well I was so happy at the contents I played each cd twice over. The best one has to be 'live in Las Vvegas' august'1969 which brings a very good question to the FTD lable staff. The songs on the 3rd cd seems to be the same as the forthcoming "all shook up" cd? 'Collectors Gold' was the first time the laughing version of 'are you lonesome tonight' was released on cd. I even got the 7 inch vinyl released in 1991 promoting this new 3 cd set. Which had of course 'are you lonesome' and the rare 'reconsider baby' live version(which I still got and cherish). The track listing and las vegas date(26/8/69 midnight show). Why then are the FTD lable claiming the new cd due out is new? When it seems its already been released before on 'collectors gold'. Mind you, I will more than likely be spending another 15.99 for the new "all shook up" FTD cd,just to see if its the same vegas concert? Anyone know the answer please ... thanks.

I really like this set. Great stuff. It'll never happen, but I wish they'd re-release this with upgraded sound. 5 stars for content.

This was a great treat to listen to when I first heard this collection. The title says it all. Still a treat to listen to.
