    Default Neil Diamond "hot august night"



    Neil Diamond "hot august night"

    pretty much the "live" album that all others either aspire to be
    or are compared to....
    an electrifying performance from the band and Diamond as a singer...
    the album, at the time, failed to make the UK top20 yet on the other hand
    still holds the record for most weeks at #1 here in Australia (29 wks at #1)...
    the making of this album was also a defining moment in his career that propelled
    him from a "mum and grandma" singer (although a hugely successful one)
    to the threshold of a fullblown stadium rocker...

    if I had to list live albums in my collection this one would be up there with the best of them!

    from the album:
