Neil Diamond - Home Before Dark (Columbia) 12/05/2008
me I'm afraid, my partner in sounds could not bring himself to talk
fairly about this one, so it was decided that I should give it a go
and more than open minded, unsurprisingly I found myself enjoying this
latest release from the 67 year old son of Brooklyn. I've been listening
to 'Saturday Live' on Radio 4 lately, which features a strain that looks
at listeners' "Inheritance tracks". Speaks for itself really,
but it has got me thinking that with release of this album, it's some
of his work that I would have to put down as those among my own inheritance
tracks, having grown up with those sounds ringing throughout the house.
So with this in mind I was able to immerse myself in the media coverage
from this event, hearing the album and watching the recent live performance
Neil gave for a select audience at the BBC Radio Theatre in May and
viewed if not first hand, the love he holds within his fans.
