    I've been listening to this CD for years

    This music is as fresh today as it was when first written. Do yourself a favor and buy this CD.

    The lyrics of the track "Be" speak to the timeless theme. The lyrics on this CD are sung by a singer/songwriter who is as timeless as any we have ever had, and the musical direction by Tom Catalano and orchestration by Lee Holdridge makes it all come together as a super outstanding vocal and instrumental listening experience. I saw the movie when it was first released, bought the vinyl record as soon as it became available, wore it out, and now have the CD. I consider it Neil Diamond at his overall, absolute best - words & music by Neil Diamond. I cannot think of anyone who could have performed as superbly as Neil Diamond, Tom Catalano and Lee Holdridge to produce a soundtrack that takes on new meanings with the passage of time. There is a 20 year old and a 6 year old in the household who, after a very quick explanation of the theme of the book by Bach, listened to the CD, lyrics and instrumentals, and uttered the same three words, "It is beautiful!" The 6 year old tears up when he hears Neil sing Be and Dear Father. Both of them want the book, so... it's back to Barnes & Noble (to answer the paternal, between-the-line-question, "No, they each want their own copy.") and the 6 year old wants his book and a CD autographed by, "Mr. Diamond." I have simpler wants and hopes. I want it to quit sleeting and hope it doesn't turn into another un-forcast KC ice storm so I can GET BACK to Barnes & Noble.

    Simply the Best

    I received this cd as a gift and to be honest was not enthused...that is until I listened to it. It is absolutely wonderful...simply the best. When I want to relax, this is the cd I reach for. The music is beautiful, Neil is great, but then, he always is. I listen again and again and never tire of of my all time fav's.
