Greatest Hits 1986-2004 (2004)

Updated: Sep 2, 2023


Greatest Hits 1986-2004 is a compilation album by Christian singer-songwriter Amy Grant, released on October 12, 2004 by Word/Curb Records and A&M Records.


It is Grant's second official compilation album (her first since 1986's The Collection). It contains a previously unreleased song called "The Water." "Come Be With Me" (featuring Keb' Mo') (another new track) is a song that was recorded for her 1997 album Behind the Eyes, but at the time of this album's release, it was an unreleased track until 2022 when it was included on the 25th Anniversary Expanded Edition of Behind the Eyes. The album also contains her cover of 10cc's 1977 hit "Things We Do for Love" recorded for the 1996 motion picture Mr. Wrong. A companion DVD called Greatest Videos 1986-2004 features Grant's music videos starting with "The Next Time I Fall" with Peter Cetera in 1986 up to "Simple Things" in 2003, along with alternate versions and remixes.


The album peaked at number 3 on the Top Christian Albums and number 48 on the Top 200 Albums charts in Billboard magazine. This would be her final album with the A&M label.
