Collectibles is a compilation album released by Canadian singer-songwriter Willie P. Bennett. Originally released in 1991 by Dark Light Records (who also released Bennett's album Take My Own Advice), on cassette and compact disc, it was re-released with a new cover and the title Collectibles Vol. 1 in 1996.

Bennett chose to release this "best of" collection with songs from his first three albums because these albums were, at the time, long out of print and had never been available on CD. The tracks were digitally remastered from analog by Peter Moore.[1]
