Neil Diamond – ’50th Anniversary Collector’s Edition’ to be Released November 30, 2018

On November 30, Capitol/UMe will celebrate a half-century of top-shelf music-making with the release of Neil Diamond’s 50th Anniversary Collector’s Edition, a 6CD retrospective that spans the singer/songwriter’s entire storied career. This fully loaded collection contains 115 tracks overall set in a hard-cover book, featuring scores of Diamond’s most beloved hits alongside demos, rarities and 15 previously unreleased tracks.

Diamond’s unique connection with audiences the world over is evident all throughout the breadth of material presented on this box set. Witness the folk-rock reverie of “Solitary Man,” the unbridled exuberance of “Cherry Cherry,” the sweet acoustic twang of “Forever in Blue Jeans,” the pure Americana swing of “Kentucky Woman,” the eternal sing-along sunshine of “Sweet Caroline,” the raw emotionality of “I Am…I Said,” the welcoming arms of “America,” and the deeply expressive “Heartlight” that’s on full display in his chart-topping duet with Barbra Streisand, “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers,” for just the tip of the iceberg of Diamond’s artistic achievements.

A full disc containing 12 unreleased songs, including recently unearthed gems such as “Sunflower,” (written and recently updated by Neil Diamond, originally recorded by Glen Campbell), “Before I Had a Dime” and  “C’est La Vie” a song that Neil co-wrote with friend Gilbert Bécaud. Meanwhile, the original demos of two of Diamond’s most indelible tracks, “I Am…I Said” and “America,” give listeners further insight into the creative process behind a pair of his most iconic songs.
