The Immaculate Collection is the first commercially released greatest videos compilation by singer Madonna. Released by Warner Music Vision, Warner Reprise Video and Sire Records on November 13, 1990 to accompany the audio CD, it contained hits spanning 1983-1990. The collection won "Best Long Form Video" category at the 1991 MTV Video Music Awards.[1][2] It was certified gold in Brazil by the Associação Brasileira dos Produtores de Discos (ABPD) for shipment of 25,000 copies.[3]


The music video was released on VHS, Laserdisc, VCD (Asia only) and later DVD. It includes the first showing of the video to "Oh Father" (1989) which is not included on the audio release and had not been a single in some countries.

The cover to this release was different from the audio version as it incorporated the back cover image from the CD/LP with the logo in the bottom right corner. The video sold 50,000 copies in its debut week and by the end of the year, had sold a 100,000 copies. After Nielsen Soundscan started tracking sales from March 1991, the video sold another 291,000 copies, for a total of 391,000 copies across United States.[4]

The video was also included in the double box set The Ultimate Collection which also contained The Immaculate Collection (1990) and also the 3 VHS box set The Madonna Collection in 2000, which also include Madonna Live: The Virgin Tour and The Girlie Show: Live Down Under.[5][6][7][8]

  • "Express Yourself": includes an edited version of the video and has an audio similar to the original Like a Prayer album version in replacement to the Shep Pettibone remix which was officially released with the single in 1989. The full remix version was later released on the 2009 compilation Celebration: The Video Collection.
