let them roll again !im forever in blue jeans ! ,great to get the Christmas party going !
Neil Diamond has 56 charted singles on Billboard Hot 100, with three number 1 hits: Cracklin’ Rosie, Song Sung Blue and You Don’t Bring Me Flowers. He has over 60 charted albums on Billboard 200. Personally, he is one of my favourite singers. I have 48 Neil Diamond CDs and 19 LPs, including the collector item: his first album The Feel of Neil Diamond.
This latest release, The Very Best of Neil Diamond on Columbia/Legacy label reached #45 on Billboard 200. If you are a Neil Diamond fan, you probably would have noticed that in the past, his greatest hits usually included “live” versions. This is finally corrected in this set, with all the songs being the original versions in the studio. Secondly, this album actually covered three different labels: Bang, Uni and Columbia. His only association with Capitol Records was his soundtrack The Jazz Singer.
In this set, there are 23 songs, covering his entire career. The sound is very well remastered, as per usual high Neil Diamond standards.
Besides the music, the gem in this release is the 6 page booklet, with Neil Diamond writing the liner notes, giving us his personal insight into each song. This is a must-read. For example, Neil got the idea of Cracklin’ Rosie from a Canadian fan, telling him the story of an Indian tribe on a reservation in Canada, deficit in the number of women.Read more ›
I want to play this through my computer - it won't, only 2nd CD I've bought that will not oblige through Real player etc. Seems to play on rather old CD player (Not in my office). How can you tell when buying Audio CD if there will be a problem? ... probably a return, sadly as seems exactly what I wanted.
Phew! Turned out all CD's had lost sound - Whichever PC update was the problem has now sorted itself - now I'm enjoying my listening!
Not sure I would recommend this to people who are not already fans, think there are other more accessible albums.
I would recommend this supplier again.
