The Greatest Gift is a posthumously-released compilation album by Scratch Acid, containing everything they had recorded.

Included is one unreleased track, "The Scale Song", which was recorded in December 1982.[citation needed].

The "Scale Song" was the last song recorded on the band's original demo, and was likely included because it was an instrumental, and did not have a vocal track by the groups first singer, Steve Anderson.
