The Best of 10 Years – 32 Superhits also known as 32 Superhits - Non-Stop Digital Remix is a remix album by Boney M. released in 1986.

In 1981 producer Frank Farian created a thirteen-minute medley in the style of Stars on 45 called "6 Years of Boney M. Hits (Boney M. on 45)" which was issued as both A- and B-side singles in certain territories - in the UK the medley was the B-side of Boonoonoonoos 12" single "We Kill The World (Don't Kill The World)", in Germany the edited 7" version appeared as the B-side of Christmas Album single "Little Drummer Boy" and the longer version as a separate A-side 12" release in early 1982.

Five years later, shortly after the unsuccessful Eye Dance project, when Boney M. were celebrating their first decade as a group - although it in reality was dissolved at the time - Farian took the non-stop medley idea one step further and extended the medley to a thirty-two track, forty-six minutes full-length album of Boney M's greatest hits with additional percussive and synthesized overdubs.

The Best of 10 Years - 32 Superhits reached #35 on the UK albums chart.
