Neil diamond - nomination !!!! Md hall of fame
#1
[Image: neil-diamond-playing-live.jpg]


This artist fell through the cracks! Neil Leslie Diamond has been with us for 6 decades!!! This incredible singer songwriter has amassed a staggering 33 studio albums and 8 live releases...I know our esteemed MD member ...Jerome will appreciate this video from Hot August Night!

Hits include Solitary Man, Sweet Caroline, Cherry Cherry, Girl You'll Be A Woman Soon, Kentucky Woman, Thank The Lord For the Night Time, Red Red Wine, Shilo, Brother Loves Travellin' Salvation Show, Holly Holy, Soolaimon, Cracklin Rosie, I Am I Said.....on and on and on!

His 1972 live album Hot August Night is electrifying! The album was Number One in Australia for 29 weeks!

The one thing I love about this artist is that his songs are real...no fancy production and very dominant and strong as far as melody is concerned!
 The ultimate connection is between a performer and its' audience!

Gets my vote! He and Barbara Streisand were classmates! I regard 'Hot August Night' as one of the best live albums ever.

Sweet Caroline is my fave of Neil's...

Love that concert intro, as you said Jerome, the best ever....
followed closely by 1970s Presley with the 2001 Space Odyssey theme IMO.

Yes, I remember the 2001 theme. Also very good. BTW, both concerts have one thing in common - brilliant drummers.

couldn't agree more about the drummers/drumming on those tracks....
