Greatest Hits Album
A GREATEST HITS ALBUM, sometimes called a "BEST OF" ALBUM or a CATALOG ALBUM, is a compilation of songs by a particular artist or band . Most often the track list contains previously released recordings with a high degree of notability. However, to increase the appeal, especially to people who already own the original release, it is common to include remixes or alternate takes of popular songs; sometimes even new material (previously unreleased) will function as bonus tracks.
