Capito will release Neil Diamond’s ALL-TIME GREATEST HITS, a 42-track, two-CD collection that will mark the Grammy® winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee’s most comprehensive hits collection since signing a long-term recording agreement with the iconic label, Capitol Records, last January. The historic agreement unites Diamond’s complete Columbia, Uni/MCA and Bang catalogs, encompassing the artist’s entire body of work, from the earliest recordings through the present-day.
On October 21, Capitol Records released Diamond’s MELODY ROAD, his first original studio album since 2008’s HOME BEFORE DARK. The new album, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, is Capitol’s first original Neil Diamond release since THE JAZZ SINGER, which featured three of Diamond’s all-time greatest hits: “Hello Again,” “America,” and “Love On The Rocks.” “Something Blue,” a track from MELODY ROAD, will also be included on the two-CD ALL-TIME GREATEST HITS.
Neil Diamond’s ALL-TIME GREATEST HITS is an expanded version of the single-CD set which came out in July 2014, and features the original studio recordings of such standards as “Sweet Caroline,” “Holly Holy,” “I Am…I Said,” and chart-toppers like “Cracklin’ Rosie,” “Song Sung Blue” and the rarely heard original solo version of “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers.” The set captures his beginnings as a songwriter-turned-singer in New York to his multi-platinum days in Hollywood, all the way to a track from his new album, MELODY ROAD.
Throughout an illustrious and wide-ranging musical career, Neil Diamond has charted 37 Top 10 singles and 17 Top 10 albums in the U.S. and has sold more than 128 million records worldwide, racking up 72 multi-platinum, platinum and gold album certifications in the United States alone. A Grammy® Award-winning artist, Diamond is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Songwriters Hall of Fame and a recipient of the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award, one of the highest honors bestowed upon songwriters. Diamond’s many other achievements include a Golden Globe Award, 13 Grammy® nominations and 2009’s NARAS’s MusiCares Person of the Year award. In 2011, Diamond received the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor for his lifetime contributions to American culture.
