Dolly Parton's Greatest Hits compilation was released in October 1982. It focused mostly on Parton's late '70s pop hits. The original track list was revised a year later to include Parton's 1983 duet hit with Kenny Rogers, "Islands in the Stream". The album has since been reissued with an abbreviated track listing.

This album was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.[1]
