Gold is a compilation of hit songs and album favorites by The Ohio Players on the Mercury label. It features music from the albums Skin Tight, Fire, Honey and Contradiction, plus two new songs recorded specifically for Gold, "Feel the Beat (Everybody Disco)" and "Only a Child Can Love". Fittingly, the album itself achieved gold certification, the last Ohio Players album to do so.

In March 2008 Mercury Records released a different two-disc compilation album called Gold (2008) which contains 24 songs.[3]
