"The Ultimate Collection" is a a 3 CD compilation by Grace Jones, released by Universal Music Netherlands in 2006. Remastered in a 32-bit sound.

The "Ultimate Collection" feautures newly remastered songs from her disco period (1976-1979), most noticeably the album version of her 1978 hit "Do or Die", which is available on compact disc for the first time in over a decade. "The Ultimate Collection" is not intended to be a singles collection, as several single releases are missing (most notably "On Your Knees", the only single from the album Muse).

"The Ultimate Collection" is more or less an expanded re-issue of Universal Music's "The Grace Jones Story" released the same year, with a few notable changes:

Disc one omits "That's The Trouble" but adds the aforementioned album version of "Do or Die", "All On A Summer's Night" as well as the original long versions of "Private Life", "Love Is The Drug" and "Warm Leatherette". Unfortunately Universal Music haven't corrected the faulty edit of "Muse" track "Saved" that also appeared on "The Grace Jones Story", which means that the two first minutes of the song are again left out.

Disc two uses the album version of "Pull Up To The Bumper" instead of the 7" edit as well as the original long version of "The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game". It adds "Inspiration", "Slave To The Rhythm" (sadly not the well-known single version but the album track that confusingly bears the same title) and "Victor Should Have Been A Jazz Musician", but omits "Someone To Love" and moves "She's Lost Control" and "Sex Drive" to disc three, which otherwise consists of alternate versions previously issued on 1998's "".

"The Ultimate Collection", packaged in a double gatefold cardboard sleeve - although usually listed as a box set, was released by the Dutch label CCM, a subsidiary of Universal Music Holland. CCM has previously issued similar 3 CD "Ultimate Collection"s by artists like Donna Summer, Barry White, Diana Ross, Kool & The Gang, Dusty Springfield and others.
