  1. Was für eine elektrisierende Performance von Neil Diamond, eine wahre Legende. Wohl Amerikas einer der erfolgreichsten Künstler unserer Zeit.

  2. Desde que era muy joven me llamó la atención su voz. Como una oruga se metió en mi mente y corazón

  3. One of my mom's favorites. She loves Neil Diamond. So sad what this world is coming to now. People need to get on the right path. Compassion. Helping. Welcoming.

  4. I think this song is worthy of becoming the personalised anthem we all recognise & remember Neil Diamond by , as only he could deliver it with so much power , style & charisma , please click the like if you agree , thanks .

  5. Qué bonito yo vi la pelicula ,de El Cantor de Jazz, más de 20 veces muy bonita ,la historia y la mejor banda sonora, un diez chaval, me encanta todo

  6. Love the song, the story, the music, and the performer. I only wish he would have acknowledged his Ukrainian heritage, rather than saying Kiev, Russia. Perhaps it is a petty nit to pick, but Ukrainians are proud that his heritage is Ukrainian! What a concert! What a career! Legend.

  7. To quote Neil's own words, and lyrics, "And wept when it was all done, for bein' done too soon, for bein' done…" Rose Diamond September 1, 1918 – February 9, 2019.

  8. Hey whoa whoa whoa audio guy — the music is overpowering Neil's voice. Turn that shit down, or turn Neil up.

  20. Neil Diamond was in 1977, four days on Tour in Netherland.there were problems with the Hammond organ (117 Volt America-Europe 220 Volt) I'm approached by Lou van Rees Management for a solution to my Hammond Rent.After four days I got my B3 Hammond returned with Fire spots of Cigarettes.It frustrated me.They have me removed me from the Neil Diamond Fan Club because I had this listed on their site.Never Excuse of Neil Diamond

  23. My father & family came to America in July 1920 on the Aquitania out of Liverpool, great song, Neil, thank you.

  24. Unfortunately Today we don’t live in Neil Diamond America! But one day we most definitely will, and those who think they can turn America into a Autocratic White Nationalist Country Will no longer voice their evil thoughts aloud!

  25. Thank you Neil Diamond for my own ancestors from my mother's mother, Ireland, from my mother's father, Scotland, from my Jewish father's family, Poland and Russia. We are all immigrant's children in America. I posted your song on my FB page to remind America what we are suppose to be about, FREEDOM. Bless you and your family! xx
