Notes: Smash Hits and Smash Hits Vol. 2 are compilation albums that have been included because a number of charts hits never made it to a regular album. Hear Hear! and This Is Us are seldom mentioned on the web. They have been included because the contain songs that did not appear on other albums. The Play the System album has been added because that album too contains early sixties songs that did not appear on previous albums. Needles and Pins features new recordings of their hits.

Compilation albums

  • 2008 - The Very Best of The Searchers (UK #11)

Note: This is the only compilation album to chart in the UK.
