Greatest Hits is the first compilation album by The Association, released in 1968 by Warner Bros. Records. The album peaked at #4 on the Billboard 200 album chart. It has sold more than 2 million copies in the U.S. alone, making it the group's biggest seller.[citation needed]

The autobiographical tune "Six Man Band", written by Terry Kirkman, was a new song which was also released as a single at about the same time as this album. Despite the title, the album does not include the singles "Pandora's Golden Heebie Jeebies" (which charted at #35 in late 1966) or "Looking Glass" (which was a regional hit), using non-hits such as "Like Always" and "We Love Us" instead.

Some recordings on this album were encoded with the Haeco-CSG process.[1]
