And you shall come
To hear our song
And learn it's tune
Before it
Fades Away......

Diamond, Neil Childsong (Reprise) Comments
  1. Robin Wier

    I'm 80 now, and I over the years I have appreciated "most" musical genres. If I had to choose a single vinyl disk to take with me, It would be the Tap Root Manuscript. My second choice would be something that included the best of the Eagles. And, of course my musical psyche was influenced most by Elvis. When it comes to music, I was born at a very good time.

  2. Ruth Parker

    Had to revisit this. I will always love this. My grand daughters 4th grade class used Childsong in a school play. They were good. Neil's music transcends the generational gap beautifully.

    NEIL DIAMOND CENTRAL

    Thanks for your comments Ruth. My! My! My! Talent abounds in your family. Grandmother who won a poetry contest judged by the one and only Neil Diamond (one of the judges), then, decades later... this! Wow! You may wish to view this video I made and perhaps let your precious ones view it as well - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqaQFq9P11M

    Neil's music does indeed transcend the ages. This very song helped neglected, severely handicapped, orphans of dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu's Romania come out their shells. Their innocent voices echoing this beautiful song. Best wishes, Doug

    Ruth Parker

    I have shown this to her. My grand daughter thinks it's "awesome."

    NEIL DIAMOND CENTRAL

    Thanks for your comments Ruth. Please convey my appreciation to your little angel. I admire her exquisite taste in music; pure class! I truly am looking forward to hearing from you regarding the requests I made earlier. Take care, Doug

    Ruth Parker

    Thank you. My granddaughter did love it. She's going to ask them to use Crunchy Granola Suite in their next musical. She's 10. And she actually picks out my Neil Diamond records to listen to.

    NEIL DIAMOND CENTRAL

    Thanks for your comments Ruth. Your little angel... such class in a small package! Here are a few videos for your little Gem -

    The 11 people who didn't like Neil diamond's song just can't feel the emotion in the songs, they should sit back close their eyes and experience the music.

  5. Dr O'Boogie

    Good job, sharing Mr. Diamond's thoughts that flooded his heart and motivated his remarkable homage to Africa, the cradle of life and the birthplace of gospel music.
    These words were shared on the back cover of the album that grew out of his passion for gospel and so-called black music.

    His special "Taproot Manuscript" album was sort of his "Graceland" album, predating Paul Simon's Grammy Award winning opus by many years however.

    I LOVE this album and this song is very special.

    NEIL DIAMOND CENTRAL

    Thanks for your comments Gary. 'Taproot Manuscript' is indeed, like 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull', a masterpiece. The difference between 'Taproot Manuscript' Paul Simon's 'Graceland' being, that unlike 'Graceland', 'Taproot Manuscript' was not a commercial venture. Neil's record company initially rejected the concept for its lack of commercial value. Thankfully, Neil was in the 70s the world's #1 Star, he was able to exert pressure on them to release the album. Incidentally, Neil produced this album some 16 years before Paul Simon's 'Graceland'. Later to be followed by Sting.

  7. Ton Wijnen

    There is no time, no place, no space, it is not why, it just is the soul of me, soolaimon, God.
    Neil understands. He adds words and wonderful music.

  8. Ruth Parker

    Listening to the beautiful children sing, makes me teary eyed, and I remember being a child and singing like I didn't have a care in the world. Have always, and will always love this combination.

    NEIL DIAMOND CENTRAL

    Thanks for your comments Ruth, such sweet memories of simpler times past. I did create a video of the entire 'African Trilogy', all 20 minutes of it. Took me weeks. I was understandably bitterly disappointed when Universal Music Group (UMG) blocked it worldwide on "Copyright grounds". Best wishes, Doug

    NEIL DIAMOND CENTRAL

    Hi Ruth, Happened to read your comments again Saturday morning, decided to make a video of 'Childsong', just for you. Worked on it over the weekend - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqaQFq9P11M Hope you like it. Best wishes, Doug

    How come Neil does not say the words in childsong

    NEIL DIAMOND CENTRAL

    Thanks for your query. I guess, a the title suggests it is _'Childsong'._ The pure, unadulterated chorus of childhood innocence is breathtaking. You may not be aware that this little song was used by a volunteer in Romania, following the fall of dictator and tyrant Nicolae Ceaușescu, to assist severely handicapped and neglected orphans. She played this song daily and it helped draw them out of themselves on their road to a semblance of recovery following years of neglect and abuse.

    He has a cousin in Bolivia. His name: David Diamond, descendant from Hungarian Jewish; He is a Preacher; a great preacher.

    NEIL DIAMOND CENTRAL

    Thanks for your comments. Are you certain of this? Interesting. Are you in contact with him? Neil's grandparents were Polish Jews.

    Tomas Martinez

    Good morning NDC; In his own testimony why he became a Cristian, Messianic Jewish, he declared his parents escaped WWII, from Hungary arriving Argentina and then Bolivia. You see in youtube that exist certain phisical similarities between them.

    Besides there was in the Europe history an empire called "Imperio Austrohungaro" that went forward even Germany and Poland.

    Thank you very very much for your attention my comment.

    I really do pity the people who gave Neil Diamond's music a thumbs down, I grew up on his music, Tap Root Manuscript was my favorite album, I saved a lot of his songs on my phone, I also saved to scenes from the Jazz Singer the Cantor scene and the scene America, I had forgotten that one was after the other.

  23. cliffedward

    What does the Hebrew word Soolaimon mean?

    Neil Diamond's song of that name is described as a variation of the word Salamah, meaning Hello and Welcome as well as Good-bye and peace be with you, in many languages." :kick:

    It is the Arabic form of Solomon, derived from the semitic root salam, meaning "peace." In Hebrew it is "shalom".
