The Platinum and Gold Collection is a 2003 compilation of Cowboy Junkies songs recorded for RCA Records. It was compiled by the label without the band's authorization or approval,[citation needed] and most Internet fansites advise that the album should consequently be boycotted by fans. Such sites usually recommend the purchase of the band's 2000 release Waltz Across America, or the individual albums, instead.[citation needed]

It is the second compilation of the band's singles released by RCA in just three years, following 2001's Best of the Cowboy Junkies, and is part of the label's Platinum and Gold Collection series of discount-priced singles anthologies.

All songs are drawn from the band's RCA Records albums: The Trinity Session, The Caution Horses, Black Eyed Man and Pale Sun Crescent Moon.
