It was first released on November 21,by Epic Records. The versions on this compilation are not the single mixes in all cases; some songs appear here in their album lengths and mixes. Mixes sometimes have different timings and differences in vocals and or instrumentation. Greatest Hits peaked at 2 on the Billboardand was the band's most successful album. Epic resorted to taking the mono single versions of these tracks and artificially "re-channelling" them for the stereo LP.

The entire album was also remixed for 4-channel quadraphonic sound. The quad album release appeared in the SQ format on LP. This system was also compatible with conventional 2-channel stereo playback systems. For many years the rather rare quadraphonic LP was the only source of "true stereo" versions of the three single tracks, although, technically these were not stereo mixes.

Normal stereo mixes of the three songs were finally done when the group's catalog was digitally remastered in the s. This edition also includes original mono single mixes in place of where the stereo recordings would ordinarily be.

Although he found occasionally "trite" music and lyrics, Landau felt that most of the songs "alone stand as a tribute to one of the most original and creative rock musicians.

He said that Stone's political songs are "uplifting but never simplistic or sentimental", and found the rhythms particularly exceptional, calling them Helter Skelter - The Beatles - Anthology 3, good-humored, and trenchant throughout". Christgau asserted that the music's flashy Stand! - Sly & The Family Stone - Greatest Hits separationsvocal sounds, and register alterations made Greatest Hits "the toughest commercial experiments in rock and roll history".

In a review upon the album's reissue inAndrew Gilstrap from PopMatters said that, although it is not comprehensive, the "slapped-together feel" may be "part of what makes Greatest Hits work so well, as if it was put together with the same freewheeling spirit that characterized the band.
