Ultimate Manilow is a compilation of the greatest hits of Barry Manilow. Nearly every Top 20 hit is included in this collection. This compilation is best known for setting the stage for a comeback for Manilow, as it debuted at #3 on the charts. While on a six-week tour to promote his latest CD Here at the Mayflower, Manilow immediately extended it to a six-month tour. At the time Ultimate Manilow was released, no other compilations of Manilow's music were in print.

Ultimate Manilow, with a slightly different track listing (but with the same number of tracks) was also issued in the UK in 2004, charting first in March of that year. In October it re-charted and went on to become Manilow's first #1 album in that country since 1982[2]
