Greatest Hits is a 1972 compilation album released by American singer Diana Ross on Motown. Due to Ross' strong popularity in the UK, Motown's UK label Tamla-Motown, issued this best-of only in England and Australia. A compilation album of Ross' early solo hits wouldn't be issued in her homeland America until 1976; Diana Ross' Greatest Hits.

It was certified Gold in the U.K for sales in excess of 100,000 copies.[1]
