Solitary Man 45 by Neil Diamond

solitary man

All careers have to start somewhere. Neil Diamond began writing songs during the early 1960s but “Solitary Man” was the first chart single of his career under his own name.

Diamond was signed to the Bang label and released “Solitary Man” during early May of 1967. It peaked at number 55 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Hot 100.

It may not have been a big hit but 55 more chart singles would follow making him one of the most successful male solo artists of the rock and roll era.
