Produced by the Band’s Robbie Robertson, who had also helmed the previous year’s „Beautiful Noise“, 1977’s „Love At The Greek“ is a document of Neil Diamond at the height of his fame, performing hits like ‘Kentucky Woman’ and ‘Sweet Caroline’ before an audibly awestruck crowd. The musicianship is impeccable throughout, while the arrangements update and in some cases improve on the originals, injecting freshness and vitality into Diamond classics like ‘Holly Holy’ and ‘Song Sung Blue.’ The medley from the songwriter’s ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’ opus is a particular highlight.

Love at the Greek captures Neil Diamond at the height of his late-’70s excess. Considerably less kinetic and exciting than the previous double-live album Hot August Night, Love at the Greek finds Diamond at the peak of his powers as a schmaltzy showman, hamming up each of his songs for the audience. It’s the kind of performance that will please both dedicated fans, who will love Diamond’s no-holds-barred showmanship, as well as listeners with an ear for kitsch, who will no doubt treasure Diamond’s immortal introduction “Ladies and gentlemen…the Fonz! Henry Winkler!” on “Song Sung Blue.”
