Gold Vol. 1 is a French-language compilation album by the Canadian singer Celine Dion, released in France by Versailles on 2 October 1995. It has fourteen rare songs recorded between 1982 and 1988, including the Eurovision-winning "Ne partez pas sans moi".

Background and content

After the success of D'eux, which became the best-selling French-language album of all time, various music labels around the world released compilations with Dion's early and rare recordings from the 1980s. They were issued by various music labels, with different covers and under many various titles: Gold Vol. 1, For You, Les premières années, Ne partez pas sans moi, La Romance, Les premières chansons vol. 1, The Best of Early Years or Classique - A Love Collection. Gold Vol. 1 was released on 2 October 1995 in France, and other titles were issued later in Europe, Asia, Australia and South America.

Critical reception and commercial performance

Rob Theakston of AllMusic gave the album three out of five stars and said that the performances offer a glimpse into the developing style Dion would later make her own.[1] James Christopher Monger also of AllMusic gave the album two and a half out stars and wrote that the album has fourteen tracks in Dion's native French tongue from her pre-Titanic years, all of which were very popular in Canada and France.[2]

The album also peaked at number thirty-two in Belgium Wallonia in November 1995 and sixty-four in Japan in March 1996.
