The successor to Neil Diamond's best-selling 1972 live album HOT AUGUST NIGHT, this in-concert set was recorded some 15 years later and features updated versions of some of the same material, in addition to newer songs like "Headed For the Future," "Forever in Blue Jeans," and "Heartlight." Diamond's no-holds-barred showmanship is still in full effect, with a powerful all-star band and an ecstatic audience contributing to the show's intensity.
