    My only regret is that Reader Digest did not edit more music that I like. It is boring to evaluate the vinyl itself. Light thin LPs packed with perfect pressed music that would laugh at your CDs. Hiss is barely noticeable on my rig, to the point that CD versions actually show more of it.
    It is the best full analog alternative to "All Time Greatest Hits" (the Collection on pressing nowadays) with subtle changes:
    -Red Red Wine is the life version
    -America is not included, I think the box set was released just before this song came outt.
    -Nevertheless it does have a more complete collection of the Neil Diamond's Career until up to 1980.
    -The Album sleeve are audiophile style with inner plastic covers and description of Mr Diamond career on the sleeve.
    I do like it more than "All Time Greatest Hits" but watch out some copies may have a defect at the start of Sweet Caroline, the shop had a second box and lucky me they replaced only the first LP as I wouldn't return the other ones.
