Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My review can not do justice to what I have just heard and seen! But I can try and describe it to you - and hope I do it justice.
First some preamble....Whenever I listen to anything by the Carpenters, I shed a little tear. Friday, 4 February 1983 was the day the world of music lost a truly great star. If I were Superman, I would want to reverse time to a few years before she died, to stop her from starting on the road to apparent self-destruction....but I'm not Superman, just a mere mortal who loved this group and lament the passing of a great voice.
Anyway, onto the package! The first CD is GOLD - the single 20-song set of the Carpenters' hits. The second CD is Christmas Portrait, their first Christmas album. The DVD is really the video "Only Yesterday".
I had all three in original format. So why did I buy this box set? Just as some climbers climb Everest - because it is there! The box-set is there to be bought and if, like me, you are a passionate, obsessive Carpenters fan, you have to have the latest release.
Karen Carpenter looked fantastic for most of her short life (until she became too thin!). She ALWAYS sounded fantastic - for me, she had (still has) one of the greatest singing voices the popular music world has ever been lucky and privileged to hear. Richard Carpenter was a brilliant pianist, arranger and a darn good composer. Between them - and with a superb set of backing musicians - they produced the most glorious music I have ever heard.
If you know the Carpenters, you know the music. You will also know the videos - unashamedly cheesey in places and slightly dated in the way Karen lip-syncs the words and holds the microphone in her left hand. The clothes also run the gamut from 1969 to 1982 - a lot of different styles.

A terrific, yet strange, collection 31 Dec. 2003
By DVD buff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an unusual compilation from Japan of Carpenters' material. It all comes in a DVD-case-sized package, which has the cover of the GOLD DVD collection (as issued in the U.S.).
Disc one is the collection called GOLD, as released in Europe in 2000. Nothing new or different on it, just a great collection of 20 of their biggest hits. Interestingly, while this CD/DVD set is a Japanese release, the Japanese version of GOLD differs from this version.
Disc two is the CHRISTMAS PORTRAIT album, first released in 1978 but presented in its 1996 remix here. It's exactly the same as disc one in the CHRISTMAS COLLECTION, right down to the printing on the disc itself.
Disc three is the DVD. It's exactly the same as the U.S. GOLD DVD (which was exactly the same as the earlier YESTERDAY ONCE MORE videotape). However, this is a region 2 DVD, meaning it will not play in region 1 players, as we have in the U.S.
The collection does not contain much by way of liner notes or photos. There is a separate booklet that includes all the song titles and lyrics and a lot of stuff written in Japanese, but within the package itself is only a simple insert with a bare minimun of information.
For the American buyer, this is really an item only for the completists, as all the songs/remixes have been heard before, and the DVD isn't playable here.
