  • This sweeping collection covers singer-songwriter Neil Diamond's output for MCA's Uni imprint, for which he recorded from 1968 to 1972, and charts his artistic development from the ambitious pop writer of "Two Bit Manchild" to the existential wizard of "I Am...I Said." PLAY ME also incorporates many lesser-known Diamond gems, like the country-flavored "You're So Sweet Horseflies Keep Hanging Round Your Face," which carries more than a hint of the influence of his erstwhile producer Chip Taylor, and his elaborate "African Suite," from 1970's TAP ROOT MANUSCRIPT album. In addition, seven live tracks, featuring songs Diamond recorded for his previous label, Bang, are included.
Professional Reviews
Q (6/02, p.132) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Diamond has created a curious canon of robustly mature, youth-bypassing pop songs...worthy of investigation."

Mojo (Publisher) (6/02, pp.126-7) - "...Here was rich madness, the soundtrack to millions of housewife crack-ups in '70s America..."
