More Greatest Hits of the Monkees was a 1982 greatest hits compilation album of songs by the Monkees, assembled and released by Arista Records. Rather than featuring strictly hit singles, the collection instead featured music from their television series, which was still airing in syndication around the US.

This album marks the compilation debut of charted hits "Words" and "The Girl I Knew Somewhere", which had been overlooked on the previous greatest hits albums.

One of the record's detractors was one of its original performers – former Monkee Michael Nesmith, who had sampled a copy, and found little to praise.[citation needed] The 1988 CD reissue differs greatly from the original 1982 LP. In fact, this was the US stereo debut of "The Girl I Knew Somewhere", which had appeared on singles and other compilation LP's in mono or "electronic stereo", although UK pressings of the European Arista 1981 Double LP compilation 'The Monkees' featured the stereo version, though German mastered copies had the song in mono.

When Rhino Records reissued the entire Monkees catalog during 1995, this and all previous Monkees greatest hits compilations were deleted.
