Diana Ross' Greatest Hits is an album by Diana Ross released in 1976 on the Motown label. In the UK and certain other territories the album was released under the title Greatest Hits 2 since a similar compilation, Greatest Hits, had already been released in 1972. This album reached #13 in the USA (#10 R&B), where it sold over 650,000 copies.[1]

The album consisting of ten of Ross' greatest hits as a solo artist, became her second album in 1976 to hit the Top Five in the UK. It was certified Gold in the U.K for sales in excess of 100,000 copies.[2] In the United States the album peaked at #13 in the pop charts. Most international editions included two additional tracks on Side A; Ross' UK #10 hit "Surrender" and the 1975 non-album single "Sorry Doesn't Always Make It Right" and also the extended single mix of 1973's "Touch Me in The Morning".

Most Motown Greatest Hits followed a similar album art template. Victor Skrebeneski was commissioned to create the beautiful photography on a very fine cardboard paper quality. The album was eventually certified platinum.
