This compilation, one of a series of Gold Collections from different EMI artists, was basically a re-release of the albums Kim Wilde and Select, excluding the track Cambodia, but including, oddly enough, the Cambodia Reprise.
The disc was re-released shortly after its original release with the title 'Gold Collection: greatest hits', in a slightly different sleeve, but with the same catalogue number.
The same track listing later appeared on The best of Kim Wilde and 20 classic tracks, two subsequent compilation albums.
On August 20, 2014, the CD was re-released in Japan as a limited edition, dropping the 'Gold collection' subtitle entirely but with the same tracklisting and sleeve design.
This album contains the tracks Kids in America, Chequered love, Water on glass, Everything we know, Young heroes, 2 6 5 8 0, You'll never be so wrong, Falling out, Tuning in tuning on, Ego, View from a bridge, Words fell down, Action city, Just a feeling, Chaos at the airport, Take me tonight, Can you come over, Wendy Sadd, Our town and Cambodia Reprise.
'The gold collection (Greatest hits)' was released on cd and tape.
