In the summer of 1971, Neil Diamond played seven sold-out nights at the famed Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, CA to a rapturous reception. The following August, he returned for ten more sold-out shows, an event forever captured on the multi-platinum Hot August Night, a double-record set that demonstrated once and for all Diamond's growing status as a superstar concert sensation. It was one of Diamond's most successful albums worldwide, living at the No. 1 spot on the charts for a staggering 29 weeks. Not only is it one of the more celebrated and acknowledged albums of his career, but it's arguably one of the greatest live albums ever recorded. Sweeping signature anthems like "Solitary Man," "Cracklin' Rosie" and "Sweet Caroline" mix well with his off the cuff treats like "Soggy Pretzels." Pressed as a 180g 2LP-set to celebrate Neil Diamond's 50th anniversary in music.
