Greatest Hits is the first collection of Maureen McGovern's previously recorded material. It is not accurate[clarification needed] to call this album "Greatest Hits", as it is more a re-release of McGovern's self-titled album from 1979, with her biggest hit, "The Morning After", replacing a memorable album track titled "Life's a Long Way to Run" and rearranging the album's track-listing. The album cover for this album is slightly different but the picture used for the front cover of her 1979 album was used for the front cover of this collection.

The album omits two of her best received movie theme songs, "We May Never Love Like This Again" and "We Could Have It All".
