I just picked up the 40th anniversary "deluxe edition" of one of my favorite live albums, Neil Diamond's Hot August Night. While I'm not a big fan of live albums in general, this is one of the best in my opinion, right up there with Frampton Comes Alive. I think the versions of many of the hits on this live album blow the studio versions out of the water -- especially "Holly Holy," "Cherry Cherry" and "Solitary Man." There has been one previous special editon of this album that added a few extra songs, and this super-deluxe treatment adds yet a few more, plus a 10-minute segment of band introductions, which should be fun to hear. (I haven't gotten that far yet.) The packaging is first-rate, witha bunch of previously-unseen photos, although I wish they'd have reproduced the original multi-page album cover exactly -- it's not quite that good, but what they did do was pretty cool. It's a tri-fold digi-pack type package with a booklet. Sound quality is great, as expected.
