Greatest Hits is the first greatest hits album by singer/songwriter Barry Manilow, released in 1978. The album was certified 3x platinum in the US, and would be Manilow's last of that certification as of 2010. It also features the new single, "Ready to Take a Chance Again", which reached #11 in the US the same year. The US CD version has been released in 3 slightly different incarnations, but the first pressing featured the regular version of "Copacabana" (4:01), and the studio, non-hit, version of "Daybreak" (3:09)."Jump Shout Boogie" was omitted from all 3 versions.

In some European countries the album was released as Manilow Magic: The Best of or simply The Best of. It was a single LP with either 11 or 12 tracks.
