Not the version you remember

If you want Neal Diamond the way you remember from the radio, don't buy this version. This one is full of alternative recordings that are far inferior. Instead buy the version with fewer songs.

It’s generous for sure

“I’m Alive” and “Headed For The Future” are a couple tracks missing keeping this set absolutely definitive, both discs clock in at 73 minutes and since there’s only two single edits i think there’s enough room for one more track each, 6 minutes can be a lot of real estate. That said this set is a nice mix of of songs set in order of style than chronology and that keeps the tracks fresh and the sonics blows “The Essential Collection” completely away. There are a lot of comps out there regarding Neil’s body of work but this one comes the closest as featuring a sample of each studio album, excluding Christmas, all the way up to his new release “Melody Road” so this set shouldn’t become obsolete soon.

Pile of Cr**

I threw this $20 purchase into cyber space trash. This is compilation is a re-record of of at least half the cuts. Glad Apple suckered me into buying this. I will learn; every year ITunes become less valuable. Hey has anyone else noticed when Apple’s license runs out they quietly delete songs you purchased at $1.29 years ago? And no one at customer support knows a thing?
