Brand new sealed album in gold vinyl with bonus 7" housed in a gatefold cover.
Gold is a compilation album by Jefferson Starship, released on Grunt Records in 1979. It collects the band's four Top 40 hit singles from the 1970s, as well as three additional singles that charted on the Billboard Hot 100, a single that missed the chart, one b-side, and one album track. All tracks were also featured on their four studio albums to date: Dragon Fly from 1974; Red Octopus from 1975; Spitfire from 1976; and Earth from 1978. It peaked at #20 on the Billboard 200, and has been certified a gold record by the RIAA.
The original vinyl album comprised either album or single versions of individual tracks; for instance the version of "Miracles" was the single and not the album track. Early pressings of the album on compact disc repeated this, but 1998 reissue included the full album track from Red Octopus. The original record release also contained a 7-inch 45 RPM bonus single, "Light the Sky on Fire", that was recorded for Star Wars Holiday Special. That and its b-side "Hyperdrive" from Dragon Fly were included on the 1998 RCA reissue as tracks six and twelve. The album was re-released on gatefold vinyl on Record Store Day, April 13, 2019, with 5,500 copies. The album is on gold vinyl and contains the mixes from the original vinyl, including the single edit of "Miracles." Like the original, the release includes a 7" 45 RPM vinyl of "Light the Sky on Fire" b/w "Hyperdrive."
