Credit: Micah Diamond“Sweet Caroline” never sounded so good (so good, so good, so good)! A wide variety of classic Neil Diamond albums, spanning from the singer/songwriter’s earliest releases to his 2010 studio effort, Dreams, have just been made available in high-fidelity audio formats. A total of 36 Diamond titles have been remastered by the singer/songwriter’s longtime audio engineer, Bernie Becker, from the original source tapes and can be purchased now at iTunes.

High-resolution audio versions of the same albums also will be released in December via the HDtracks website. Among the remasterd releases are various studio and live albums, compilations and movie soundtracks, including the five-times-platinum 1980 soundtrack to The Jazz Singer.

The high-fidelity remasters campaign comes on the heels of the CD and digital release this past Friday of Neil’s new holiday album, Acoustic Christmas, a 10-track collection features a mix of traditional and Diamond-penned tunes. The record was co-produced by Don Was and Jacknife Lee, both of whom also worked on Neil’s acclaimed 2014 studio album, Melody Road. A vinyl version of Acoustic Christmas will hit stores on November 18.
