This week celebrates the 35th Anniversary of Spandau Ballet's second biggest hit, "Gold". Released in August 1983, from the True album, it reached the Top 10 in Australia, peaking at #9, and #2 in the UK. The band's biggest ever single is "True" from the same album. 


Gary Kemp scores the sole writing credit on this one, the official music video was shot in Spain by Brian Duffy - a prolific portrait photographer of the 60s and 70s - and features a very young Sadie Frost in one of her first ever acting roles.
