Ultimate Collection is the second greatest hits compilation album by the British pop duo Eurythmics, and was released in November 2005. This set preceded (by one week) the re-issuing of all eight Eurythmics back-catalogue albums originally released on the RCA/BMG label. These re-issues include remastered tracks and bonus material. The fact that the Ultimate Collection was closely connected to these re-issues is also the chief reason for the omission of "Sexcrime (Nineteen Eighty-Four)". While that song gave Eurythmics a #4 hit in the UK in 1984 and was later featured on the previous Greatest Hits album released in 1991, it is actually taken from the 1984 Virgin Records soundtrack album 1984 (For the Love of Big Brother), Eurythmics' only album to date not to be released through RCA/BMG.
Here for the first time are the integral Sylvie Vartan RCA albums, from between 1962 and 1986, in Deluxe Vinyl Replica. You could find 41 CD with 716 tracks (including 171 Bonus Tracks & 32 unreleased tracks). Deluxe Vinyl Replicas by Culture Factory constitute high quality reissued compact-discs which reproduce all the components of the original LPs and are their exact replicas in compact-disc size (5.3 x 5.3 inches), with authentic single or gatefold cardboard jackets and paper sleeves. In addition to the above, each compact-disc Deluxe Vinyl Replica includes a black finish CD complete with the original label to give it the look and feel of the original record album.
