Silver is a 1983 album by Cliff Richard, marking his 25th anniversary in music.[1] It features the hit singles "Never Say Die (Give a Little Bit More)" (the extended 12" version of this single has yet to appear on any CD), "Please Don't Fall in Love" and the double A-sided "Baby You're Dynamite"/"Ocean Deep". An album track, "The Golden Days Are Over" was recorded by pop group Bucks Fizz a year later and released as a single.

A limited edition 2-LP box set of the album was also released in the UK. The second LP, entitled Rock 'n' Roll Silver contained 9 new recordings of rock 'n' roll classics, including Cliff's debut single "Move It", and one new song "Makin' History".[2]

The original 1983 CD release of Silver only included 9 tracks from the Silver LP and 7 from the Rock 'n' Roll Silver LP, in order to fit on a single disc. In 1992 it was re-released on CD (paired with The Rock Connection in a twin-pack) with the same track-listing, but was curiously titled Rock 'n' Roll Silver.[3] In 2002, Silver was remastered and re-released on CD, excluding the Rock 'n' Roll Silver tracks, but including the B-sides of the singles as two bonus tracks.

Rock 'n' Roll Silver has not yet been released on CD in its original form, but Cliff's 1984 album The Rock Connection[4] which originally contained 5 tracks from Rock 'n' Roll Silver, also included the remaining 5 tracks as bonus tracks when the remastered CD edition was released in 2004.
