Greatest Hits is a 1988 compilation album by Kenny Rogers.

All of the tracks on the album were selected from his various recordings on the RCA Records label between 1983-87. There is one track that was not originally a single called "She's Ready for Someone to Love Her", which makes fully half of this greatest hits track list identical to the most recent 1987 album I Prefer the Moonlight.

One single that is notably missing is "Tomb of the Unknown Love" from 1985's The Heart of the Matter. The song was a #1 single in both the US and Canada. Also missing is Rogers' 1986 single "The Pride is Back" which made #30 on the US Billboard AC chart, it had not yet been released on any album. "I Don't Call Him Daddy" was released as a single in support of this album, but with little promotion it peaked at #86 on the country chart.
