A compilation released in various territories outside the U.S., including the U.K., The Ultimate Collection
covers Whitney Houston
's career through 1998's My Love Is Your Love
, containing most of the notable singles she released throughout the '80s and '90s. It's a fairly straightforward set, though there are some alternate mixes in place of original versions (including "I'm Your Baby Tonight"), which is not noted on the outside of the packaging. Some will find fault in the number of notable exclusions, including "Miracle," "You Give Good Love," "I Believe in You and Me," and "All the Man That I Need" -- all of which were Top Ten R&B singles in the States. But that is more an issue of space than poor track selection.
