This really is a good collection for Neil Diamond novices. It is a tall order to find a 'definative' Neil Diamond collection as there will always be so much left out of this prolific songwriters catalogue. Offering a mixture of recent 'live' recordings and the more familiar studio work, the former appealing more to those who have experienced Neil Diamond's live shows. This collection is unique in that it benefits from the additon of the sublime 'lady Magdelene' and 'Yes I will', which in my opinion, are probably two of his most outstanding musical contributions. ( For those wishing to hear these songs in their original format, then 'Serenade' is the album for you!)
It has, sadly become'uncool' to like Neil Diamond's music and he has never really received the critical acclaim that he is truly deserving of. This man's contribution to music and poetry is awesome and this collection stands as testament to that. Sheer genius.!

A 2 CD set with a good selection of Neil's hits from over the years. For the fans who thought they had everything, there is a section thrown in to tempt them as well - from his present tour set (2001/2002) Neil does great live versions of Captain Sunshine, He Aint Heavy and a medley of Yes I Will/Lady Magdalene (with Neil on piano). Definitely something for everybody here.

The problem with this set is, that the issuing label, Sony/BMG, doesn't have the rights to the masters of Neil's most fruitful period, 1968-1973, while he was with the UNI/MCA label. So they have to license those tracks from MCA/Universal, which is obviously a costly operation. In order to keep the price of this set low, the people at Sony/BMG have instead chosen to include some recent live versions of Neil's UNI/MCA output. His early years with Bang are well represented though (when will Sony/BMG finally decide to come up with his complete Bang recordings?), while his later work with CBS is clearly overrepresented. This results in a rather uneven collection, which is often the case when an artist's work is divided between two big companies. It's a pity....
