Synopsis

Amazon.com
Neil Diamond began his career as a hit-making songwriter from the Brill Building song factory, so he knows his way around a pop song more than most folks. Classics: The Early Years marks the time when he was in transition, continuing to write for others--"I'm a Believer" was a hit for the Monkees in 1967--while making his own records for the Bang label. Diamond's early hits were indeed gems: the snappy "Cherry, Cherry," "Kentucky Woman," "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon," and his own take on "I'm a Believer," among others. Diamond's act later devolved into adult-contemporary schlock, but for a few years in the late '60s, he was absolutely at the top of his game. --Daniel Durchholz
