One of my favourites - Love On The Rocks

 

So, what is film The Jazz Singer all about? Well, in short it is a remake of the original 1927 classic - also called The Jazz Singer. Produced in 1980, it starred Neil Diamond - in his first and only film - Sir Laurence Olivier, and Lucie Arnaz and was co-directed by Richard Fleischer and Sidney J. Furie. Although the film received mixed reviews the soundtrack was hugely successful, eventually reaching multi-platinum status and becoming Diamond's most successful album to date. There were three major hit singles to come from the album - "America", "Love on the Rocks" and "Hello Again". Why not have a listen to Hello Again.......

 

America - another classic single from The Jazz Singer

 



The Jazz Singer represented Neil Diamond's one and only film appearance. Although his acting career did not really take off his singing career has continued to go from strength to strength - encapsulating and captivating generations of a huge fan base. The soundtrack of the film remains one of Neil Diamond's greatest albums and has, and will continue, to stand the test of time.
