Released on Columbia sub-label Date in 1968, Greatest Hits features the first seven charting A-sides from Peaches & Herb. That includes "Close Your Eyes," a number four R&B hit, as well as "(We'll Be) United," "Let's Fall in Love," "For Your Love," and "Love Is Strange" -- all of which reached the Top 20 of the R&B chart. The remaining four songs were either B-sides or A-sides that failed to leave a commercial impact. In 2009, the Wounded Bird label reissued the collection on CD -- straight up, with no bonus tracks. The Best of Peaches & Herb: Love Is Strange, a 16-track anthology released by Legacy in 1996, remains the best overview of the duo's late-'60s output.
