Cracklin’ Rosie 45 by Neil Diamond

cracklin' rosie

Neil Diamond had sold tens-of-millions of albums and charted 19 singles before he released “Cracklin’ Rosie” during the summer of 1970. It would become the first number one song of his career as it topped the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Hot 100 Singles Chart for one week. During its 15 years on the chart it sold over one-million copies.

It was a smooth up-tempo pop song that was typical of many of his hit singles. It remains one of his signature songs.
