With only four full-length albums and a couple of live records to their name, it's hard to view this 2006 two-disc Cinderella set as being essential, especially as the thorough Rocked, Wired & Bluesed: The Greatest Hits was released early the preceding year. Nevertheless, the two-disc Gold contains almost everything a Cinderella fan could want or possibly need. Almost. For some reason, the group decided to opt for live renditions of two of its most well-known recordings -- "Gypsy Road" and "Somebody Save Me" -- over the original versions. This flaw aside, Cinderella comb through their other releases to present this 30-song collection of their other hits, including the power ballad "Don't Know What You Got ('Til It's Gone)," the hard-driving "Shake Me," and the MTV favorite "Nobody's Fool." Regardless, there really isn't much reason to purchase Gold for anyone who already owns the economically sensible single-disc 20th Century Masters or Rocked, Wire & Bluesed collections, and those with just a casual interest in the band would be better off with either of those collections instead.
