"Sweet Caroline" is a soft rock song written and performed by American artist Neil Diamond and officially released on September 16th, 1969, as a single. It was recorded at American Sound Studio in Memphis, Tennessee. There are three distinct mixes of this song. The original mono 45 mix had a loud orchestra and glockenspiel compared to the stereo version on the Brother Love's Travelling Salvation Show LP. The third version was a remix found only on the initial CD release of Diamond's His 12 Greatest Hits. This version has the orchestra mixed down very noticeably and has the background vocals mixed up. It has a longer fade as well. A live version of the song is on his "Hot August Night" LP. The song reached #4 on the Billboard chart and eventually went platinum for sales of one million singles.
