Greatest Hits (1996)

Updated: Nov 12, 2023


Greatest Hits is a double-disc compilation and live album by Christian rock band Geoff Moore & The Distance, released on September 17, 1996 by ForeFront Records.


Released on 2 CDs, Disc 1 contains ten of the band's greatest hits from the early to mid 1990s, plus two new songs "More Than Gold" and "Today," with a music video done for the latter song and the radio single for the former. The new tracks were produced by Jimmie Lee Sloas, Brent Milligan and Tedd T. Disc 2 called "The Live Set" contains nine songs recorded live on tour in Rome, Georgia. A live concert video called Roadwork was released on VHS the same year and the following year won the Dove Award for Long-Form Music Video of the Year at the 1997 GMA Dove Awards. Greatest Hits peaked at number 33 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart.
