Who's Greatest Hits is a 1983 greatest hits compilation album from The Who.[3] It includes the rare track "Relay", presented here in its original full length. An earlier appearance on Hooligans has shortened it by almost 30 seconds. It also includes the original single version of "Won't Get Fooled Again".
