50 YEARS AGO: NEIL DIAMOND CATCHES FIRE WITH “HOT AUGUST NIGHT”

Neil Diamond recorded his first live album on a warm August night in 1972 at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Two and a half months later, the rest of the world found out just how hot it really was.

He came into this concert as a known and respected singer and songwriter. Diamond had scored a number of hits for himself (“Cherry, Cherry,” “Sweet Caroline,” “Holly Holy,” “I Am … I Said” and the chart-topping pair “Cracklin’ Rosie” and “Song Sung Blue”).
