Goldtop: Groups & Sessions '74–'94 is a compilation album by the British guitarist Snowy White, released in 1995. The album features solo recordings by White along with tracks that he recorded with various artists between 1974 and 1994.

Seven of the tracks were previously unissued, including the bridged version of "Pigs on the Wing" by Pink Floyd that had previously only been available on the 8-track version of Pink Floyd's "Animals". It also includes instrumental rehearsal versions of "Slabo Day" and "In the Skies" with ex-Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green. The album also includes recordings with Thin Lizzy, Al Stewart and Richard Wright. The track "Love, Pain and Sorrow" features David Gilmour, and "Highway to the Sun" features Chris Rea.

The title of the album refers to White's well-known Gibson Les Paul Standard guitar which has a gold-coloured finish.[2]
