Ultimate Collection is a 1999 compilation of songs by the band The Fixx. It is largely a collection of singles; many tracks appear as they did on their respective 7" releases. However, there are two B-sides, and one recording pulled from the rare Happy Landings EP, which make it stand out from other greatest hits collections. This is the only Fixx collection to include the original recordings of all tracks.
