BGO RECORDS (UK , 2007) BGOCD755

allegedly combines BACKSTAGE and CHER'S GOLDEN GREATS on one CD. It does not, but deceptively uses masters from an early 70s UA LP comilation (THE GOLDEN HITS OF CHER)

and a retouched illustration of GOLDEN GREATS. Pre-release illustrations of the package more accurately represented the albums within.

(Missing GOLDEN GREATS cuts are "Dream Baby", "Take Me For A Little While", "Needles And Pins" and "Where Do You Go".

Extensive but inaccurate liner notes by John Tobler

Stereo Remaster by Andrew Thompson

STEREO / MONO LP

It appears that Imperial / Liberty (U.S.) neither mixed a mono master or released a mono version of the LP.

Foreign subsidiaries instead folded down the stereo master #12406 for mono and / or mono/stereo compatible releases.

"Golden Greats" does not use the mono-only 45 mix of "You Better Sit Down Kids"
