Chart Placings:
UK 48

This is the first CD released by Sony BMG, following the new agreement with Frank Farian - for the few years before 2006, Boney M recordings were not available on CD, as Frank Farian had no deal with a record label to release his recordings. This CD features classic Boney M. tracks, using the same versions that appeared on the Gold CD in 1992. Also on this CD Frank Farian included a new track "A Moment Of Love" recorded with Liz Mitchell, and a remix of "Sunny" by Mousse-T. On the CD inlay the track Rasputin, has an indicated time of 4:42, suggesting that the 7" version was used on the CD, but this is not the case as the version from Gold CD was used.

A limited edtion of this CD was relased with a 2nd CD containing a Boney M. megamix entitled "Magic Megamix". Sony Music re-released this CD as "This Is Boney M." in 2010.

Sony BMG Music Entertainment released 2 versions of this CD. Both CD's have exactly the same tracks, but the UK release (and some for other non European countries) has a different order to that of the more general European release, probably to showcase more of Boney M.'s big UK hits at the start of the disc.
