Product Description


In 1975 a simple white covered LP with a big remarkable ”Smokey“ print all over the artwork changed the world of music as it was. Not only that the quality of the songs causes protest by slightly similar named singers that forced the band to change their signet to the then famous banner “Smokie”, it also marks the breakthrough to a breathtaking Hit packed career of these extraordinary talented musicians. Classics like “Living Next Door To Alice,” “Lay Back In The Arms Of Someone,” “Mexican Girl,” “Baby It's You,” “For A Few Dollars More,” “Do To Me’, and many others became popular all over the world and often peaked at the number 1 spot in the charts. Germany counts about 419 (!!!) weeks in chart history. Several UK top spots, huge success in Scandinavia and Australia, 9 Top 10 Hits in Ireland and at least “Alice”, the 7 times #1 single entered the Top 25 hit lists in 12 countries, including the US, and made the Smokie sound a beloved trademark. Now, celebrating the 40th anniversary of their debut, the new release “GOLD” is the ultimate “Best Of” compilation. For the very first time it offers all the Smokie hits from all different line-ups. Beginning with the founding formation including Chris Norman on vocals to his successor Alan Barton, who died in a tragically accident that almost stopped the very existence of the band and Mike Croft, the actual front man, who finally managed to breathe new life into the suffering members and took Smokie back to fame.

The “GOLD” DVD offers the official promo (Studio/Film) clips to their biggest hits on DVD for the very first time! Plus career breaking TV performances from UK’s Top Of The Pops, including their very first TV appearance. Contributions from BBC UK, ZDF & RBB Germany, ORF Austria, and the ITV Archive includes the legendary German “Disco”. TV Show performances will become fan highlights from this set. As well as the live concerts “Live in Bulgaria”, “The Bratislavska Lyra Festival”, “Live in East Berlin” and “Live from Bradford”, there is a lot of never before seen live content. An additional bonus feature is a long lost Smokie documentation from Germany (English subtitled) and Australian Interview footage plus unseen home video from Pete Spencer with new music by Chris Norman – to name just a few.

Total playing time approx. 7h 45 min. - Almost all content previously unreleased!
