Hits: Greatest and Others was a 1973 compilation Vanguard put together at the end of Joan Baez' association with their label. In addition to her hit cover of The Band's "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", songs by the Beatles and Kris Kristofferson were also included. Unlike previous compilations, this one skipped over most of Baez' earlier traditional material almost entirely, in favor of her more recent singer-songwriter material and covers. The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" (Robbie Robertson).

Joan Baez: Classics (Also known as Classics, Volume 8) is a 1986 compilation, focusing on her A&M period (1972–76). Released in the mid-1980s, the album was significant for being the first Joan Baez compilation to appear on CD, and remains one of the more comprehensive collections of her 1970's work. The CD was part of A&M's series of compilations from artists associated with their label to commemorate their 25th anniversary.

Hits/Greatest & Others ‎(LP, Comp, RE, Woo). Grandes Exitos Y Otros ‎(LP, Comp).

Exclusive Prime pricing. Although these are gorgeous, seemingly original versions, I must say I personally found three of the 'live' songs pretty lackluster, and tend to skip past: notably, The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down but also Oh Happy Day, and Amazing Grace.

Album Rock Hard Rock Contemporary Pop/Rock Arena Rock. Raucous Rowdy Aggressive Brash Energetic Rambunctious Rousing Confident Exuberant Freewheeling Rebellious. Guys Night Out Partying. Joan Jett, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. Released in conjunction with the major motion picture The Runaways, 2010’s Greatest Hits is a double-disc, 21-track set that offers a basic overview of her hits with the Blackhearts and the work she did afterward, then adds re-recordings of her Runaways hits for good measure. These re-recordings were made for the movie, and are by and large heavier than the originals, so they get the collection off to somewhat of a leaden start, but once they give way to the original recordings, this is a good overview of Jett’s basics.
