AllMusic Review by

Following their "farewell tour," MCA released yet another Who collection, the first one ever titled Greatest Hits. The compilers don't take the title literally. Sure, many of the group's biggest hits ("Substitute," "My Generation," "Magic Bus," "Pinball Wizard," "Won't Get Fooled Again," "Love, Reign O'er Me," "Squeeze Box," "Who Are You") are here, but nearly as many are missing, including "Behind Blue Eyes," "Pictures of Lily," "See Me, Feel Me," "Join Together" and "I Can See for Miles," their biggest American single. So, it's a random selection, which may not be that frustrating to a casual fan, since what is here is very good. Nevertheless, it should not be seen as a definitive collection or even as a good introduction -- it's just an entertaining sampler.
