"With the sole exception of a 1983 collection of remixed and re-recorded tracks from Neil Diamond's 1966-67 Bang heyday, that period of his career has remained woefully out of print, with many of Diamond's best songs remaining unissued for nearly 40 years. The long overdue The Bang Years, due out tomorrow on Columbia/Legacy, goes a good way of correcting this oversight, collecting the 23 original mono mixes that Bang! released in 1966 and 1967... When people mention Neil Diamond's music, this stuff is what they should be talking about. Everything that came afterward pales in comparison."
