  • #1 on the Billboard Chart This Week . . . . Neil Diamond?

    I don't know what's more surprising, that Neil Diamond debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart this week, or that "Home Before Dark" is his first #1 album ever.

    In another busy week in the top tier of The Billboard 200, Neil Diamond's "Home Before Dark" zooms in at No. 1, becoming his first chart-topping album. The Columbia set got a big plug when Diamond appeared on "American Idol" two weeks ago, bolstering its 146,000 first-week U.S. sales, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

    The Rick Rubin-produced "Home" is Diamond's biggest debut sales week since SoundScan began tracking in 1991. He first appeared on Billboard's charts in 1966 with "The Feel of Neil Diamond"; the closest he ever got to No. 1 was with the 1973 soundtrack to "Jonathan Livingston Seagull," which reached No. 2.

    I guess it doesn't hurt to make an appearance on "American Idol."

          Yup, so what is the correct definition you are using? Are they stupid -lacking in intelligence or maybe idiots- lacking in professional skill.

          or both? LOL!

          Either way you see it, I see $$ signs, that has to account for something.

            Neil Diamond was always more of a singles guy than an album seller. Kind of surprised that Hot August Nights never hit number 1 though.

              IMO, it still ranks as one of the best live albums ever.
