Had Astrud Gilberto only ever recorded her endearing rendition of the Antonio Carlos Jobim song "The Girl from Ipanema," she still would have gone down in pop music history. Fortunately, Gilberto had a long association with Verve Records that resulted in a number of jazzy Brazilian pop albums that made excellent use of her breathy voice and unassuming delivery.

The two-disc GOLD set skims the cream from Gilberto's output, bringing together her recordings of such bossa nova classics as "Corcovado" and "Berimbau" alongside material that falls more in line with '60s-era adult pop. But whatever the song, Gilberto's wistful, breezy vocals bring out its essential appeal. Well selected, and boasting remastered sound, GOLD is the definitive Astrud Gilberto sampler.
