I picked this up today at my local Target because it was 4.00 off, together with Egypt Station by Macca. Put in the car stereo, man, does this sound abysmally compressed. Like an audio from a DVD, badly ripped and then burned to a CD. Great setlist, though, Neil Diamond Jukebox like.
Will give Egypt Station a listen tomorrow, though I am underwhelmed by the lyrics to I wanT to fuh you… We’ll see. Good Night.


Anxious to see and own! But the ULTIMATE for me would be for them to release a concert dvd of THE JAZZ SINGER tour!!! I have seen all of his tours since 1976 and The Jazz Singer tour for me was his absolute BEST!!! I saw 4 of those shows and still was not enough! Had the opportunity to see twice as many and regret not doing it! Would be so awesome if they would make a dvd of Neil’s performances on that tour!!!! PLEASE!!!


Amazing that this one was still accessible to fix up for release. Next he should release a show from when he toured for 12 Songs, a show from when he toured for Melody Road, a 50th anniversary tour show (I saw that one) then he’ll have released every show since 2001. He should pull unreleased material and release lots of it. Especially live albums since he will never headline a tour again.

I was there on the Saturday night the 18th, Neils mothers 94th birthday. It would have been my mum’s 89th but she passed away a year earlier. I had flown in from England.
As I was leaving I was stopped, interviewed and filmed. I am excited at the prospect of being on the DVD. Thank you Neil for all you have given to us. A fitting memory but “Done Too Soon”.


Nice way for Neil to end his career with the third instsllment in the Hot August Night trilogy. Definite must have for my collection.


Hello Lee, at the Greek he gave a total of 5 concerts in August 2012, flew in from Germany just to see him there, I saw the Aug 23 concert, there were cameras all over, maybe you saw him on another day, desperately have been waiting for 6 years now to see this video release, if it is the recording of the Aug 23 concert you may see me at the left side in the first row, maybe it is am mix of all 5 shows


This will be another superb live album to add to my massive ND colection
We was lucky enough to go to this concert at the greek theatre, i do not remember any cameras recording so i can only assume it was on another night
It was a magiacl experiance and one i will never forget
I have now seen every uk concert in last 37 yrs. the man is a Legend

Beverley Vernau

Excellent man shame he won’t come back to England again have seen him 10 times in concert

Barbara C Walsh

I got excited when I heard about this. I love Neil and saw him in concert several times. Fantastic but the prices are a little outrageous. I’m passing on this.

Benjamin Adams

LOL whut.

I’ll stick with the original HAN.

Herman Bulten

No “If you know what I mean”……a big waste !


So glad that I saw him in London. Love the man. One of the best ever performers.

elliott buckingham

wish he’d play the pot smokers song


“Audience Exit” could be the band’s play out music after Neil has left the stage……

Ben Williams

Cool release. Neil Diamond is a great live act. Glad I saw him when I did a few years ago.

Strange that “Audience Exit” is an actual separate track unless its an obscure b-side of Diamond’s that I’ve missed?
