Neil Diamond "Gold" is a brilliant CD with 41 Neil Diamond songs on it. A great mix of the well know, the not so well know, the catchy, the serious, the gritty. My most favourite of Neil's songs is on this - Canta Libre. On the CD's, like many other artists, tracks over lap and get repeated, but this song is so memorable and it is only on 1 other collection that I know of.
If you only ever buy 1 Neil Diamond CD then this would be the one to get because the variety on it is huge - tracks of pure gold on this 2CD collection.
Out of interest all the songs that are on "The Best of Neil Diamond" are also on this CD.

I come to Neil Diamond through his recent albums with Rick Rubin, and loving what I heard there I decided to try dome of his back catalogue, starting with this gem of an album which seems to be the best way of getting a taste of his work in the early seventies and late sixties.

It starts in 1968 wit several tracks from `Velvet Gloves and Spit', then anthologises `Brother Love's Travelling Salvation Show', `Touching You, Touching Me', `Tap Root Manuscript', `Stones', `Moods' and the live album `Hot August Night' from 1972.

In those 4 years Diamond released a cornucopia of great pop tunes, and this collection represents that nicely with some 41 classic tunes spread across 2 discs. The inclusion of the live tracks allows us to hear some of Diamond's earlier work with the `Bang' label such as the melancholy `Solitary Man' and the classic `Red Red Wine'. It really is a great album to listen to, and after listening to it I am probably going to get the original albums because I like it so much, but for the casual listener this contains all the essential tracks. I am off now to find a collection that covers his post 1972 Columbia years with the same thoroughness.

5 stars. Essential collection for lovers of that classic Diamond 3 chord pop song.

i bought this chiefly because it has the remastered version of Brooklyn Roads - a great song which is not on many of his greatest hits compilations - but I have also found other gems on this album, so well worth the price.

This is a really good collection of Neil Diamonds songs. The album is excellent quality. It contains most of the songs that made him so well known. If you only plan on having have one Neil Diamond CD - this would be a good place to start. The album is also excellent value at Amazons price. Neil Diamond is one of those singers whose music will be around forever, so this album is recommended.

Tuneful songs and brilliantly produced.. Only a two channel, but plays like an SACD recording in surround sound... If you just like to put something on and enjoy a good listen, without going all religious about the artist, then be sure to get this .... Def. a few £'s well spent..
