I received the black vinyl version of this 23 track comp from Amazon UK and it came unexpectedly with a download card for 24bit 92k WAV of each of the four sides.
It sounds great to me - wide soundstage, and about as nice as I reckon it could sound digitally. Holly Holy and America sound superb. Even Red Red Wine sounds rich Soolaimon is just exquisite.
No complaints at all and not sounding squeezed like the Bang Years.
£20 for 23 hi-res 24bit tracks of this legend's best songs is pretty good value in my book - and the vinyl is heavy and quiet.
The gatefold is very nicely done - feels like a bit of love has gone into this. Its images of Diamond in his prime are very nice.
The CD is about the only Diamond album I don't have, so I can't say if the sound is near the same but, owning so much else of his recordings - having searched for the best quality available, I am hugely impressed by these WAV downloads.
No indication on the listing or sticker that any kind of download is included.
I wonder if the imminent LP reissues of the live albums will include hi res downloads as well? Great if they do....
...so I said to my other half 'what would you like for Christmas' she says '...a Neil Diamond CD' - I say '... oh? I didn't know you like Neil Diamond??' ( we learn something new every day! ) so checked out Amazon and found this - the Delux version of his 'All-Time Greatest Hits - and it's great -all the chart hits are there plus other notable songs you may have heard that were written by him -we play CDs in the car and I think we'll both enjoy this...this is a recommendation for the DELUX version - i had a look at the other one and it's only half the tracks...this is special for someone special...easy transaction - speedy delivery - recommended
originally I was going to return this cd due to its "cracked" front case, although packaging and wrap was undamaged so the person I had bought it for simply said its ok as long as actual cd isnt damaged who worries about a case? anyway we unwrapped the case and sure enough 1/2 of the splines that hold the disc in place were also broken off, so now the disc is unstable inside the case. again some may say its the cd thats important to which I'd say ok so you have a great sounding Ferrari pity the wings and doors are scratched and damaged but so you say it doesnt stop the car running, just looks poor
What great songs, what great music and what a great voice. Neil Diamond is also a song-writer up there with best ever. My favourites, almost impossible to name there are so many, but if I had to choose 2 they would be America and the hauntingly sad Morningside.
This cd is a treat to the ears especially in these troubled times- NEIL DIAMOND songs are catchy and the listener just cant help but sing along , this keenly priced cd is a welcome edition to my many/varied collection- what a musical genius this artist is - he sings simple but very effective way-raising spirits and capturing this moment in time.!
Actually, my dear wife loves it to be perfectly honest! This cd has not been off since it arrived yesterday, and I have to confess their are really good songs on here that instantly took me back years. seems very good sound quality, and the wife tells me all the goodies are here. Highly recommended.
Brings back good memories of my teenage years. One of the fondest memories was anyone (schoolmates) seen playing the guitar kneeling down will be called "Kneel Diamond". Had listened to Neil Diamond's songs in the past over the radio and have always like his voice. I finally purchased his CD 44 years after hearing the "Kneel Diamond" moniker. It is never too late...
A really good value album which contains most of Neil Diamond's hits and more. This is nostalgia on a disc and will transport you back to those care free days of the 70s and 80s with decent audio quality too. A good value compilation.
I never cease to be impressed with your prompt deliveries Amazon. I needed this CD as a birthday present for a friend ( she especially likes his song "Beautiful Noise) so I have no doubts this will be a good buy .... my favourite is on here too "crackling Rose" 😄
