This collection looks similar to the Japanese release from 2003, but the CDs in it are different. The U.S. version combines the 2-CD Gold collection with the Gold DVD.
All three discs are in a DVD-case-size slipcover. Inside the slipcover is a case that folds out into three panels; one panel contains a very nice booklet, one panel contains both the Gold CDs (in a nifty overlapping way), and the third panel holds the DVD. The booklet is very nice, containing all the liner notes from the CD set, plus the track listing for the DVD.
While there is nothing new in this collection, it is an extremely nice presentation. If you don't already have the Gold CDs, this is a great way to purchase the collection.
Produced by Richard Carpenter, Karen Carpenter and Jack Daugherty
