The Original Hits is a compilation album by Spanish duo Baccara released on label BMG International in 1990. The Original Hits was BMG-Ariola's first compact disc release of Baccara material and was in fact a re-issue of 1978 compilation The Hits Of Baccara (RCA PL 28344) provided with a new title and alternate artwork.
The Hits Of Baccara having originally been issued in late 1978, this consequently means that The Original Hits omits recordings from the duo's third and fourth studio albums Colours (1979) and Bad Boys (1981) including single releases "Parlez-Vous Français?", "Body-Talk"/"By 1999", "Ay Ay Sailor", "Sleepy Time Toy" and "Colorado", thus creating a retrospective that only covers the first half of the original Baccara formation's recording career.
