Kentucky Woman was recorded and written in 1967 and actually did very well in the charts reaching the 22 spot! Interesting enough, it was mixed in mono. Now there’s a fun fact for you. Anyways, you can never go wrong with Neil Diamond. He freaking rocks! With that being said, please enjoy this song. This is a great live performance at the Madison Square Garden around 2008.
“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.” – Neil Diamond
Deep Purple covered this song and it was different in so many ways – the feel and the whole vibe of the track. We’re still wondering what Neil thought of it. But we bet he found it fun to listen to.
