Smoke Notes

On August 24, 1972, a young singer/songwriter by the name of Neil Diamond took over Los Angeles' beautiful Greek Theater for 10 sold out nights. The legend of Neil Diamond the performer was unquestionably born on that night. Diamond and his band were at the peak of their game that summer, a night that would be captured forever on the two-record set. 'Hot August Night' changed his life and his legacy.

One of Diamond's most successful albums worldwide, the multiple platinum album in the US spent a mind-blowing 29 weeks on the top of the charts in Australia. 'Hot August Night' is the most celebrated and acknowledged albums of his career and arguably one of the greatest live albums ever recorded..

Now, as impressive and wide-reaching as the scope Diamond showcases on the original recording, 'Hot August Night' 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition covers an even greater array. This re-mastered edition features signature hits and fan favourites, as well as three previously unreleased recordings, plus all his stage banter and band introductions unearthed from the archives of 40 years ago, making this a complete aural experience capturing that magical night..

The unreleased material includes "A Modern Day Version Of Love" where Diamond shows off all of his skills as a masterful vocalist with this gorgeous rendition of his 1968 chestnut. The Randy Newman-penned "I Think It's Going To Rain Today " is a genteel ballad in which Diamond displays his humanity, almost speaking the soft words against the backdrop of a sparse, but theatrical arrangement. And finally there's "Gitchy Goomy," which he introduces as a philosophy lesson to a child learning about life. And like all great children's tales, this one has just the right mix of morality and infectious fun. Also included are the previously unheard band introductions, nearly ten minutes of a great showman putting on a class in the increasingly lost art of stage banter and showmanship.
