Neil Diamond

So Rick Rubin continues to "do a Johnny Cash" on Neil Diamond. I'm not totally convinced this is playing to Neil's strengths but I'm in favour of anything that gets him the credit he deserves as one of the great pop songwriters and performers.

Here's an Neil classic that's ripe for revival (it's practically a dance record already thanks to that kick drum).
