    Wow. This hasn’t been done before…
    …for at least a couple of years!

  2. Bren says:

    Given that Gold has been constantly in print, More Gold and the 3CD Thank You For The Music w/booklet can be easily picked up and the albums individually or boxed it is difficult to see exactly who this is aimed at.

    The promos were on DVD as part of the Complete Studio Recordings set (love mine!) and I suspect they are available separately on a standalone DVD.

    • Mike Fisher says:

      I wasn’t impressed with the promo video remastering on the Super Trouper DE. The skin colour was strange!

    Important to mention that apart from the DVD video clips, the CD tracks were NOT remastered for this set. Furthermore, the DVD will be available seperately.
