It’s really happening…
First and foremost, this video is of course dedicated to Dennis, a huge Neil Diamond fan…While I really wanted to feature something from the new album “Dreams” (November 2nd, 2010), I was left with little choice but to focus on his past hits.
According to wikipedia.org, the man has been making or performing music since he was 17 years old. That’s technically seven decades worth of dedication. Regardless of his total sales (115 million records), oftenly recognized for his intermittent chart success, in the end i think it’s safe to say, he does, what he wants and when he wants. That is truly the spirit of indie.
Dreams, will feature a collection of songs he holds close to his soul
Ain’t No Sunshine
Alone Again (Naturally)
Feels Like Home
Midnight Train To Georgia
I’m A Believer
A Song For You
Let It Be Me
Don’t Forget Me
Though “Hello, again” may have been more fitting…I thought this “Love On The Rocks” video to be as genuine and high quality as what was available.
