About Silver & Gold

Silver & Gold is the sixth studio album and second Christmas album by Vanessa Williams, originally released in the US on October 12, 2004 on Lava Records and purchased by YMC Records in 2005. It gained critical acclaim like its predecessor, Star Bright, did in 1996, although not a major success, selling only 100,000 copies to date. The album peaked at #120 on the Billboard 200 , #46 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums , #24 on the Top Holiday Albums and #2 on the Top Gospel Albums. "Merry Christmas Darling" and the title track became decent hits that holiday season due to airplay, the former reaching #18 and the latter reaching #4 on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart. Since its initial release, the album has been reissued twice in the United States. In 2006, YMC re-released it under the 20th Century Masters - The Christmas Collection line with the subtitle The Best of Vanessa Williams, Vol. 2. This release was distributed by Universal (Volume 1 being their re-issue of Star Bright). Its second reissue came in 2016, once again under YMC Records, but this time distributed by the budget line, Sony Music Commercial Music Group, removing most of the album's liner notes and leaving only the production credits intact
