"20 Golden Greats" is a compilation album by Diana Ross, released on the Motown label in Europe in 1979. It was certified Platinum in the U.K for sales in excess of 300,000 copies

The album was released for the international market and became the diva's best charting album in the UK since another greatest hits collection (released in 1976) also peaked at #2. Due to the large number of tracks included and the time limitations of the vinyl album format the running time of several titles were changed and were either slightly edited or had fade-out ends. The 20 Golden Greats album remains unreleased on CD.
