Greatest Hits is an official greatest hits album, featuring all of Ike & Tina’s biggest hits and is also the very last album from the duo before they separated. The cover pictures on both sides were photographed by Norman Seeff. In England, Spain and Australia, the album was released one year later under the different title The Very Best of Ike & Tina Turner with a different cover picture and two additional tracks.

Collection of hits from the earliest days to more recent material makes up set that should pull in pop, soul and disco play. Good indication of the role the pair have played in the evolution of rock. Early hits were often recut by English groups, and later hits were often covers of white versions of the same songs. Interesting thing was the way Ike & Tina rearranged material to suit themselves and often became identified with the rearranged versions.
They performed a song that they put out afterward, but the way they performed it in my session was an early version. And when I developed the film, I was very clear what my future was. It was a moment of destiny.
