Greatest Hits is a collection of Robyn Hitchcock material from the A&M period 1988-1992 (which spanned the albums Globe of Frogs, Queen Elvis, Perspex Island, & Respect).

The collection also includes various hard-to-find B-Sides, which acted as a strong selling point for Hitchcock's fans, including Legalized Murder, Ruling Class, Dark Green Energy and Bright Fresh Flower. In addition, two cover songs are included – Bryan Ferry's More Than This and a live recording of The Byrds' Eight Miles High.

It was released as part of A&M's Backlot Digital Remasters Series on September 9, 1996.
