In early 1968, still a few weeks shy of his 18th birthday, "Little" Stevie Wonder would already have eight studio albums to his credit. Among them was his most recent release at the time, Someday at Christmas, which had come out in November 1967.

Already a guaranteed hit-maker, the time was right to follow Wonder's first Christmas album with his first greatest hits LP. Released on March 25, 1968, Stevie Wonder's Greatest Hits would be a spring hit for the Tamla label. It would break into the mainstream albums top 40, peaking at #37. It would fare much better on the R&B album chart, where it would climb as high as #6.

The album was a one-stop-shop for Stevie Wonder fans, including such hits as "Uptight (Everything's Alright)," "Fingertips Part 2" and "I Was Made to Love Her."
