• Neil Diamond: Hot August Night

Friday, August 03, 2012


Universal music has released a new 40th anniversary edition of one of the highlights of Neil Diamond's career, the classic Hot August Night.

Back in 1972, Neil Diamond said at the show, "This is gonna be special. I promised that before I came back to this theater that we would do things for you that you would not forget for a while and that's what we're about tonight."

On August 24, 1972, the 30 year old Neil Diamond took over the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles for a 10 night run. The album peaked at number 5 in the U.S. and spent a massive 29 weeks at number one in Australia.

The new release of the album will include previously unreleased songs recorded at the show.

The album is celebrated with a fully remastered, 40th Anniversary deluxe edition reissue, with additional tracks, unseen photos and more; all housed in beautiful foldout packaging – personally overseen by Neil Diamond.

A Modern Day Version Of Love is one of his songs from 1968 finally featured on the new record. The Randy Newman-penned I Think It's Going To Rain Today was left off the original. The song Gitchy Goomy, he introduces as a philosophy lesson to a child learning about life.

Watch below as Neil Diamond sings his classic "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon" in 2001.
