Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees: Neil Diamond

Spring training is in full gear, and opening day at Fenway Park is just a month away, when the Red Sox fans will be singing along to "Sweet Caroline" before the bottom of the 8th inning. But before that, Neil Diamond, the song's writer and performer, will be honored as an inductee at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Here are some highlights of Neil Diamond's work that you can find at the library:
