Today Neil Diamond is mainly remembered for his pop and easy listening hits but during his early career he could actually rock a bit now and then.
During the summer of 1967 he rocked with the top 20 hit, “Thank The Lord For The Night Time.” He followed that hit with “Kentucky Woman,” which first reached the BILLBOARD Hot 100, October 14, 1967. It peaked at number 22 during its eight weeks on the chart. The song returned to the top 40 a year later courtesy of Deep Purple.
Neil Diamond placed 56 songs on the BILLBOARD Pop Singles Chart, 1966-1988, but none so enjoyable as his early rock hits.
