Gold is a compilation album by Bonnie Tyler.

Content[edit]

Released in 1993, the album contains Tyler's work from her pre-Jim Steinman days in the late '70s and early '80s. "It's a Heartache" is the lead song of the collection, which is followed with "Lost in France". "My Guns Are Loaded" makes an appearance here, unlike on The Very Best of Bonnie Tyler where it was excluded. What follows is a whirlwind tour of Tyler's first four studio albums (including cover versions of Sometimes When We Touch and Piece of My Heart), and the collection finishes suitably with one of the final cuts from Goodbye to the Island, "A Whiter Shade of Pale", as the final cut here.
