Music Monday: Neil Diamond and “Crackin’ Rosie” from 1970

He may not have been at the top of my 1970s music listening list, but when it comes to soft rock, there are few men who can match his vocal talent. A Twitter snippet of a live performance of “Cracklin’ Rosie” put me in a good mood last week, so including the YouTube video below for this week’s Music Monday was an easy decision. Enjoy!

Tour dates on the final leg of Diamond’s "50 Year Anniversary World Tour" in Australia and New Zealand were cancelled. An announcement on his official website said he was not retiring from music and that the cancellation of the live performances would allow him to "continue his writing, recording and development of new projects.”  LINK
