I wanted all of the duo's biggest hits on a single CD and I wanted good sound quality. The two popular contenders for best single CD Eurythmics collection are "Ultimate Collection" (this CD, 2005) and "Greatest Hits". There are two different versions of the "Greatest Hits" (both 1991). I compared them and here's my results.

There are two versions of the "Greatest Hits" CD, both having with the same cover and title and both put out the same year, but they have a different tracking order. The Arista one has only 14 songs, including "The King and Queen of America", which is not on the other but was not a big hit. The BMG/RCA UK version has 18 songs, including "Miracle of Love", which is not on the other. "Miracle of Love" was a big hit.

The CD called "Ultimate Collection" (2005) is newer and more popular. It contains 19 songs and more of their later songs, which may or may not have been hits - I did not recognize them although they were decent songs. I assume more devoted fans would appreciated having those songs. "Ultimate Collection" contains all of the big hits found on the UK "Greatest Hits" CD, including "Miracle of Love".

The "Ultimate Collection" CD suffers compression added during remastering which squashes the music and makes the CD overly loud - most people won't catch that but I did a sound comparison of the two CD's on a good stereo and using Nero to see the files. In Nero, you can see the full peaks of the tracks on the UK "Greatest Hits" and so there is no compression and that is the truest sound to the original. I guess they could have raised the overall volume up on some songs, which show as quieter than others - but you can't hear the difference.

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on Oct. 30 2008
Format: Audio CD
Eurythmics made some of the greatest sounds of the 1980 in many genres, not just the standard synth-pop. Lennox & Stuart also made a major contribution in the forgotten band The Tourists before the birth of Eurythmics. Unfortunately this album contains too many tracks already available on Greatest Hits.

Some less inspired songs from the 1990s have been added. This really shows a lack of interest and imagination in view of the huge treasure trove of classic album tracks. The compilers could have chosen The Last Time from Revenge, Jennifer from Sweet Dreams, Shame & Beethoven (I Love to Listen to) from Savage, When the Day Comes Down from We Too Are One and Belinda & She's Invisible Now from the obscure first album In the Garden.
But for those who never got round to Greatest Hits, it's a worthwhile purchase. Every rhythm they took, they made their own: consider the catchy calypso of Right By Your Side, grand rock ballads like Thorn In My Side and When Tomorrow Comes or the perfect pop of Love is a Stranger. Their emotional range is unique: the chilling menace of You Have Placed A Chill In My Heart makes a stark contrast to the joyful exuberance of There Must Be An Angel or the powerful affirmative Sisters Are Doing it for Themselves.

The new single I've Got a Life is shouting like a "classic" eURYTHMICs song. In fact Annie Lennox said in an interview that the songs Sweet Dreams(are made of this) and I've Got A Life would be the "bookends" of her and Dave Stewart's work. The other new song Was It Just Another Love Affair, is definitely La Lennoxa and Dave Stewart's style merge into one.
I encorage everyone to grab a copy of this CD because of the remastered classic hits. Definitely a MUST BUY!!

The Ultimate Collection by The Eurythmics captures the essence of quality 80’s hits of a synth pop and dance quality. Many may remember this group through their hits Sweet Dreams, Here Comes The Rain Again, Would I Lie To You etc(which are also within this collection). However, there are also other memorable hits on The Ultimate Collection by The Eurythmics available in this compilation that are not played as often on some radio stations such as “There Must Be An Angel.”

I bought this for my neighbour for Christmas (she had never heard of the Eurythmics - gasp!) I have two copies of this (one home and one car) and thought the neighbour would like it - she was totally impressed!

I've said before that GH packages are subjective and you'll get tunes you know and ones you don't. That certainly applies here. It's a pretty good package and you'll get most if not all you're looking for.

buy "Savage" not this. It may be the "best of" but lacks excitement and cohesion It's OK but not my favourite.
