AllMusic Review by

Although it makes no mention of it anywhere on the package, The Gold Collection is actually a Louis Armstrong live set and not the straightforward hits compilation it presents itself to be; the sound quality is decent and the song selection fine (with "Sweet Georgia Brown," "Tiger Rag," "Hello Dolly!" and "Saint James Infirmary" among the featured tracks), but with so many better Satchmo collections on the market, this one is easy to avoid.
