Winter Words - Hits & Rareties is a compilation album by All About Eve (or at least a compilation put out in their name) by their then former record label Mercury with whom they had had an acrimonious split one year earlier. As it was, this album did not have the support or the backing of the band, and its deliberate release on the same day as their fourth album, Ultraviolet, could not have been timed worse for the prospects of that album.

For all this however, Winter Words was, at the time, the most comprehensive anthology of the band's music from their period with Mercury, and contained two previously unreleased songs. Another similar compilation, The Best of All About Eve, was released in July 1999, although both have now been superseded by Keepsakes.
