Neil Diamond's first release after his recent deal with Capitol Records will be a career-spanning compilation.
All-Time Greatest Hits goes on sale next Tuesday and draws from the various labels Neil Diamond has called home since the 60's.
The 23 tracks include classics like "Sweet Caroline," "Holly Holy," "I Am...I Said," "Cracklin' Rosie," "Song Sung Blue" and a rarely heard original solo version of the song "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" (a duet version of this one was released with Barbra Streisand in 1977).
It will also include Neil's recordings of "I'm A Believer," which he wrote early in has career as a staff writer on The Monkees TV series. The Monkees made that their biggest hit when it peaked at #1 in 1966). The collection will also feature "Red Red Wine," which was also a #1 hit for UB40 in 1988 (the second time the song made the top 40 in the 80s. It also charted in 1983).
Neil's first album of original material since 2008, Home Before Dark, will be released later this year on Capitol Records.
Here's a clip of Neil's 1966 hit "Solitary Man," which includes commentary from Neil from his years on Bang Records.
