Neil Diamond

Neil Diamond was one of the greatest musical acts of the last half of the 20th century and still around today. Given the talent and great music created during that time, that says a lot. The awards for him keep adding up. Known for signature songs that Americans love. A song writer that made other bands famous recording his songs.

I chose the following from one of his earlier (6th studio release) albums, "Tap Root Manuscript." Diamond's expression of an African sound. It's called, "The African Trilogy." Released in 1970. This is the whole "B" side of that album. The "A" side had his hits like "Free Life" and "Cold Water Morning", and "Cracklin' Rosie."


This would be considered outside of the popular songs Diamond was famous for, but I think it's an example of his musical genius. This man has been a big hit for over 50 years. Check out his music!
