Greatest Hits + Five Unreleased is a greatest hits compilation released by American singer/musician Steve Perry in 1998. The album contains hits from his two solo albums Street Talk (1984) and For the Love of Strange Medicine (1994) as well as several previously unreleased tracks from the abandoned solo project Against the Wall, as well as demos, b-sides and collaborations.

Against the Wall was originally going to be Perry's second solo album. It was shelved by a corporate executive during the time when Sony Music bought Columbia Records. This executive was not too sure about the musical direction of the album. Seven of these tracks were later released on this album and the others were released as bonus tracks on the 2006 re-issue of For the Love of Strange Medicine. He states in the album booklet that these songs all together should be called "Better Late Than Never."[1]
