Neil Diamond was born on January 24, 1941 in Brooklyn, New York. He is a great song-writer, composing most of his own songs, and some for others. Neil Diamond is actually his real name, but early in his career, he considered changing his name to Noah Kaminsky! He had written for The Monkees TV show, and also wrote the score for the movie Jonathan Livingston Seagull. He also starred in and composed the music for The Jazz Singer in 1980.

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.

Amazon purchase:
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!

I am a long-time fan of Neil Diamond although I don't like all of his output. This is mostly a charming album with all the classics on it, some of them reworked to suit his voice now. I do miss the depth and power of his voice when he was a younger man, but this is still mostly very listenable.
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.
