Ultimate Collection is a compilation album by American singer-songwriter Aimee Mann. Released on September 12, 2000, by Hip-O, the album predominantly comprises tracks from her major label days in addition to a few tracks from the new wave band she fronted, 'Til Tuesday.

Release[edit]

Before its release, Mann issued a statement disavowing any involvement with the creation of Ultimate Collection, writing that the compilation was never authorized by her and that her offer to assist in putting the album together after she heard of the project's existence was "flatly refused."[4]
