On November 30, Capitol/UMe will celebrate a half-century of top-shelf music-making with the release of Neil Diamond's 50th Anniversary Collector's Edition, a 6CD retrospective that spans the singer/songwriter's entire storied career. This fully loaded collection contains 115 tracks overall set in a hard-cover book, featuring scores of Diamond's most beloved hits alongside demos, rarities and 15 previously unreleased tracks.

Diamond's unique connection with audiences the world over is evident all throughout the breadth of material presented on this box set. Witness the folk-rock reverie of "Solitary Man," the unbridled exuberance of "Cherry Cherry," the sweet acoustic twang of "Forever in Blue Jeans," the pure Americana swing of "Kentucky Woman," the eternal sing-along sunshine of "Sweet Caroline," the raw emotionality of "I Am…I Said," the welcoming arms of "America," and the deeply expressive heartlight that's on full display in his chart-topping duet with Barbra Streisand, "You Don't Bring Me Flowers," for just the tip of the iceberg of Diamond's artistic achievements.

A full disc containing 12 unreleased songs, including recently unearthed gems such as "Sunflower," (written and recently updated by Neil Diamond, originally recorded by Glen Campbell), "Before I Had a Dime" and "C'est La Vie" a song that Neil co-wrote with friend Gilbert Bécaud. Meanwhile, the original demos of two of Diamond's most indelible tracks, "I Am…I Said" and "America," give listeners further insight into the creative process behind a pair of his most iconic songs.

Throughout his illustrious and wide-ranging career, Neil Diamond has sold over 130 million albums worldwide and has dominated the charts for more than five decades with 38 Top 40 singles and 16 Top 10 albums. He has achieved record sales with 40 Gold albums, 21 Platinum albums, and 11 Multi-Platinum albums.

A Grammy Award-winning artist, Diamond is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Songwriters Hall Of Fame, and has recently received The Johnny Mercer Award, the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award, three of the highest honors bestowed upon songwriters and artists. Diamond's many other achievements include a Golden Globe Award, 13 Grammy nominations, ASCAP Film and Television Award, Billboard Icon Award, American Music Award and 2009's NARAS's MusiCares Person of the Year Award. In 2011, Diamond received the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor for his lifetime of contributions to American culture.

For the past 50 years and counting, Neil Diamond has been on top of the winds of change in popular music every step of the way. Experience the triumphant drive of his career arc in full with this most inclusive 50th Anniversary Collector's Edition.
