The Platinum Collection is a box set by German singer Sandra. This is her most comprehensive compilation to date.
There are two versions of this title, one with 3 CD's, and one with CD 1 & 2 only.

CD 1 & 2 include all of the Singles from 1985 to 2009 in their original form or slightly remixed, and some favorite albums tracks as well.
CD 3 includes several Extended Versions/Remixes and a CD-Rom portion that connects to a link where one can download 5 additional tracks in MP3 format, 5 high-quality photos and biography in English and German in PDF format (with the same content of the CD booklet's).

A total of 23 exclusive tracks are included in this release: 12 previously unreleased on CD, 10 that were previously available on CD-Single format only (or other formats such 12" at the time of its original release; now out-of-print), and 1 that was previously available for promotional use only.
As stated in the CD booklet, all tracks were re-mastered, sounding brighter and (very) bassy.
