Best of Dark Horse 1976–1989 is George Harrison's second official compilation album and was released in 1989. It follows up on both his successful comeback album Cloud Nine in 1987 and the Harrison-led Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1 the following year, also a big seller.

The album covers Harrison's work released on his own Dark Horse Records label, ranging from 1976's Thirty Three & 1/3 to Cloud Nine and beyond. Best of Dark Horse 1976–1989 failed to chart in the United Kingdom and reached #132 in the United States.

Best of Dark Horse 1976–1989, originally distributed through Warner Bros. Records, went out of print some years after its release, without being reissued by EMI when it acquired Harrison's entire Dark Horse catalogue.

Specially for this release, Harrison recorded two new songs—"Poor Little Girl" and "Cockamamie Business"—while also including his Lethal Weapon 2 soundtrack song "Cheer Down" for good measure. These three songs were not included as bonus tracks on the remastered edition of Cloud Nine, nor did they appear on the The Dark Horse Years 1976–1992 box set. There are currently two Harrison retrospectives in print, 1976's The Best of George Harrison and 2009's Let It Roll: Songs by George Harrison, the latter of which includes "Cheer Down".
