Souvenir: The Ultimate Collection is a 1989 box set by Billy Joel, spanning almost his entire musical career. The whole set is five discs. Disc one is a collection of live songs while discs two, three, and four are all studio songs (except for "Say Goodbye to Hollywood" and "She's Got a Way", which are both from the 1981 live album Songs in the Attic). The songs on disc two and three are all of the songs from Joel's very popular Greatest Hits, Volume I and II album released in 1985 (the version with "Honesty" and without "Don't Ask Me Why"). Disc four is his 1989 album Storm Front. The fifth and final disc is a collection of interviews and the song "Souvenir" from his 1974 album Streetlife Serenade, the song which the set is named after.
