All The Best is Tina’s second greatest hits album, featuring her biggest hits, three new recorded songs and a longer version of „Great Spirits“ from the Brother Bear soundtrack. The track „Something Special“ was a leftover from the Wildest Dreams recording session and Complicated Disaster was intended for the second single after Open Arms, but was only released as a digital download. The album marked the highest chart entry for Tina in America, with #2 in it's first week. In America, it was re-issued the following year as an abridged single disc version under the title All The Best - The Hits and in April 2018, it was reissued in England under the title The Greatest Hits, including a different cover art to promote TINA The Musical in London. In Germany, it was instead re-released as a 'musical edition' on December 07, 2018 with the original cover art but with a sticker on the front and infos about the musical in the booklet.
For promotion, Parlophone / EMI Records released an interview disc about the stories behind the songs. Conducted by Alan Jackson in Zurich Switzerland in September 2004, the interview is divided in 23 cuts (total duration 29.20). The video version of this interview was later included as a bonus feature on the All The Best home video and the Open Arms CD single.
