A greatest hits album, sometimes called a "best of" album or a catalog album, is a compilation of songs by a particular artist or band. Most often the track list contains previously released recordings with a high degree of notability. However, to increase the appeal, especially to people who already own the original release, it is common to include remixes or alternate takes of popular songs; sometimes even new material (previously unreleased) will function as bonus tracks.
Greatest Hits was released in 1967, four years after her death, and it focuses more on her country-pop crooners but it’s a solid album. Beginning with her first big hit Walkin’ After Midnight, these are timeless classics, most of which charted on both country and pop charts, and are still heard today in films and radio. It’s one of those compilations that gives you a taste of their radio-friendly style with familiar hits like Just What I Needed and Let’s Go but also more interesting tracks like Touch and Go and I’m Not The One that will definitely have you deep-diving into the rest of their catalog. Released in 1985 during an extended break between albums, Greatest Hits also included a new single ( Tonight She Comes ) which gave them another top 10 hit.
