Master Series is a greatest hits compilation by English girl group Bananarama. It was released in 1996 and contained a mixture of Bananarama singles and album tracks. It includes material from 1983-1993. First released in 1996 in continental Europe and Brazil, it saw a re-release in 1998 in Germany and France with different artwork on both. The European and Brazilian versions differ in that the European release includes the single mix of "Movin' On", whereas the Brazilian release has the album version. For collectors, Master Series also includes for the first time on a Bananarama album the UK single version of "More Than Physical", an edit of the song True Confessions which was used in the film PI: Private Investigations, and a non-segued album track "Dream Baby" from Bananarama.
