Neil Diamond live in concert is something to behold and this cd captures the excitement of the live show.

I've been fortunate enough to see Neil in concert twice, 12,000 giving you a standing ovation at the end you know you're doing it right!

Many of Neil's hits old and new are here plus some recent album tracks, what's interesting is that Neil always performs them differently.

Neil's band deserves a special mention for always giving him great support and the sound quality is excellent.

This really is one of the best cd's I've heard for a long time, can't wait to get the companion dvd.

I wrote at the end of my review of "12 Songs", that if Neil Diamond was to cement his return to form that that album had critically demonstrated, he would have to change his live performances accordingly and go back to the style of the 70s. By that I meant, he sang as opposed to growled and dropped the insincere showbiz stage persona that had dogged him through the 80s onwards.

I am happy to say that when he released "Home Before Dark" he carried on the musical craft he had rediscovered and during his live show at Birmingham in 2008, I witnessed his total return to form. In other words, he had achieved the complete turnaround I was hoping for.

This latest CD is the stage show that he took around the World in 2008 and boy is it a cracker.

One thing Diamond always managed in concert was the ability to manage tempo and moods in the delivery of the set list of songs. Now, however, with the quality material on offer from his last two albums, he has room to manoeuvre the old standards around and freshen things up. You will see from the song listing that he starts the concert with Holly Holy, an old encore pleaser which now opens the proceedings with a bang. In reality, this is the real deal. The warmth of his home NY crowd, and the sheer enthusiasm he has recently rediscovered, keeps you smack in the middle of this event from start to finish.

There's something for everyone and the quality of his voice and the masterful backing band and singers gives a tremendous double disc delight.

If there is a highlight for me then it is "Hell Yeah", the classic he wrote for 12 Songs. It chills and inspires you in equal measures. A truly modern day slant on Sinatra's "My Way".

I bought this CD with great expectation and my expectations were significantly exceeded. The CD is awesome, the selection of tracks are well balanced with a mixture of Neil's old classics with his new. The quality of the recording is exceptionally, so much so that you can feel and sense that you're in the concert.

If I'd heard this without knowing about the other two "Hot August Night" albums I would award it five stars without question.
O.K. Neil's voice isn't quite as good as on the 1972 version, not surprisingly, given the 35 year gap! but it's still great, with that powerful emotional sound we've all become famililiar with. A terrific performance then.
The problem for me is the repeat of so many Diamond classics which appear on the original albums and countless other "live" perfomances. The impact isn't there now, due to this choice of too familiar material - done of course, because that's what the fans want to hear. I suspect Neil's a bit fed up with "Cracklin' Rosie" etc..etc...by now.
Having the original 1972 and 1986 CDs and the Rick Rubins, I don't think I'll bother with this one -superb performance though it is.

Well, he's done it again, and like the previous 2 "Hot August Night" Albums, this is a must for any collection. Taken from the 2008 Tour it is a perfect mix of the oldies, and a taster of the wonderful new stuff from "12 Songs" and "Home Before
Dark". With bonus tracks including one of my favourites "If You Know What I Mean" it is a well balanced mix of Neil and his wonderful band at their best. I became a "Believer" when i got hooked by the first "Hot August Night" from 1972, I still play it today.(Love the vynil with the crackles, even though I also have the CD!) Get the DVD too..DIAMOND IS FOR EVER!

Neil at his ultimate best, get this (with Hot August Night II) we dont normally like live performances but when you've heard Neil here you may well change your mind! we did instantly!!! it sounds like you're really there & you can join in with the screamin crowds. its fan dabby dozy. are we glad we got this or what? This proves he was only 2nd best to Elvis. Rock on Neil.

Heavily compressed sound so ok for ipod users but for serious listening - forget it.

This is a fantastic CD with some wonderful tracks on. What more can I say, it's a must for all you ND fans. If you want to see the concert however don't forget the wonderful DVD of the same show, with some extra footage of Neil visiting his home town. Neil Diamond - Hot August Night/NYC [DVD] [2009] [NTSC]
