Neil Diamond Hot August Night

Back in 1972, Neil Diamond said at the show, “This is gonna be special. I promised that before I came back to this theater that we would do things for you that you would not forget for a while and that’s what we’re about tonight.”

On August 24, 1972, the 30 year old Neil Diamond took over the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles for a 10 night run. The album spent 29 weeks at number one in Australia.

The album will include previously unreleased songs recorded at the show. “A Modern Day Version Of Love” is one of his songs from 1968 finally featured on the new record. The Randy Newman-penned “I Think It’s Going To Rain Today” was left off the original. The song “Gitchy Goomy,” he introduces as a philosophy lesson to a child learning about life.

The new version of Hot August Night will be released in the USA on July 31, 2012.
