All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
When you've released over a dozen charting albums and have had those albums whittled into nearly as many single-disc anthologies, the necessity for a more thorough double-disc anthology is obvious. Stephanie Mills' Gold is wholly necessary: nearly all of its 30 tracks were significant chart hits, so it covers a lot of ground that casual fans will be happy to have. From a creative standpoint, the years Mills spent working with James Mtume and Reggie Lucas were the most productive; this material takes up most of the first disc, including "Whatcha Gonna Do with My Lovin'" classy soul-rooted disco that would've been at home on Philadelphia International or Salsoul, "Put Your ...

The second disc locks into place with Mills' most commercially successful material -- ballads like "I Feel Good All Over," "I Have Learned to Respect the Power of Love," and "Home" put her on top of the R&B chart, while the relatively groove-oriented "Something in the Way You Make Me Feel" and "You're Puttin' A Rush on Me" had the same exact power. The Ultimate Collection, released by Hip-O in 1999, is representative and fine as an introduction, but it isn't as justifiably in-depth as this.

    Not Worth The Money!

    Although a lot of her hit songs are featured on this compilation, However almost every song is a short radio edit version. In other words its not worth the money due to the fact that all of the good parts in almost every song have been taken out. And i know its not unheard of for an artist to condense their songs but these songs have been chopped literally in half. Once you finish playing both cd's you are stuck with this feeling like where is the rest, What a horrible way to treat your fans. But then again maybe HIP-O RECORDS were the ones that decided to release this homogenized crap.

    Stephanie always delivers - music is fantastic

    Stephanie Mills is one of the best singers in the business. Her vocal range makes each song meaningful and unique. It's ashame more people don't demand her music. CD goes from R$B,dance, duets to new material. Each song she gives her best, rich soulful on the ballards, to energized on the dance songs. I would recommend this CD to everyone looking for a change from the ordinary music heard on radio these days
