Neil Diamond – “Kentucky Woman” Live

Neil Diamond – “Kentucky Woman” Live | Society Of Rock Videos

Spreading The Love One Song At A Time

“Kentucky Woman” was originally recorded by Neil Diamond but the 1968 cover version of Deep Purple is just as popular. It has not only received positive reviews but, like most of Neil’s songs, is another chart-topper. There was no stereo mix released on CD. Instead, all the records in his compilation albums are mixed in monophonic.

  • Peaked at number 22 on the U.S. pop singles chart
  • Ranked number 58 on the Australian charts
  • Reached number 6 on the Canadian charts

Diamond wrote this Country-tinged song while he was on a 32-city tour with the Dick Clark Caravan, sharing a bill with Tommy Roe, Billy Joe Royal and P.J. Proby. In the liner notes to Diamond’s anthology In My Lifetime, he wrote: “We attracted teenage girls almost exclusively and the house, usually a high school auditorium, was filled to the rafters with screaming females night after night. The song was written in the back of a limo as we approached the outskirts of Paducah, Kentucky.”

This video shows just how talented Neil Diamond is. When his songs have been released years ago and he can still kill it on stage while his fans are screaming in delight, you’ll know he’s legendary — not just the performance or the song but the man himself! His soulful baritone voice hasn’t changed and the passion he puts into every song is remarkable. You can be with one million other people in the audience and yet when he sings, it’ll feel as though it was especially dedicated for YOU.
