    Good question. I don't have a clue, but I will say that I bought the first gold disc of Van Halen I, and it is DEFINITELY clearer and has a much crisper sound to it! However, I payed $24 for it, and if the new WB remasters sound anywhere near as good as the gold disc, then who is going to pay that much for a remastered 1984 when they can get the same thing for less than half as much (11.00 + SH charges at CDNOW) with the WB version?

    i guess i finally had to find the answer to my own question....

    according to the shopping section of Yahoo Music DCC the company that releases all these Gold CDs has sept. 9th set as a release date for the gold cd of 1984.

    curious since the WB remasters come out like a week later...

    I was under the impression that the company who manufactured all the Gold discs were out of buisness. That's why all these Gold CD's are selling like hot cakes on E-bay and other
    auctions. Remember a Gold disc is not a Remaster, each disc is created from the original Master recording. I guess some of them do sound better and some don't. I do know that a sealed Gold Disc of "The Wall" was selling for 150.00 on E-bay. I don't know if any were created for the VH collection. I know that the gold disc selection did not cover a wide range of artist. I don't beleive any Gold discs were made of Zeppelin either.If there bringing back the manufacturing of these discs it's news to me. Does anyone have further information on it??????

    i thought the gold discs were re-mastered from the original recorded tapes.

    i know that the U2 ones have some songs that are longer due to the fade outs being different and the edits not done.

    sounds much more like it was meant to be heard...
