Whitney Houston – The Ultimate Collection
The Ultimate Collection is a Whitney Houston greatest hits collection, released on October 29, 2007. It was the first time a single CD of Houston’s hit singles had been released. It debuted at number five in the UK, with sales of 37,228. It climbed to number three in its second week on the chart. As of February 2012, the album has sold over one million copies in the United Kingdom. In Brazil, the album was released as Whitney Houston – The Best So Far. In 2011, it was reissued as All Time Best – Reclam Musik Edition in Germany and Switzerland.
Unlike the North American edition of her previous singles compilation, Whitney: The Greatest Hits, the upbeat and dance-oriented songs—with the exception of ”I’m Your Baby Tonight”—are not remixed and contain the original version of those songs (although a couple are shortened by up to 30 seconds).
