Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. The Jazz Singer is an album by Neil Diamond which served as the soundtrack album to the 1980 remake of the film The Jazz Singer. The soundtrack was released in November 1980 originally on Capitol Records, instead of his then-usual Columbia Records, because the film was produced by EMI Films, owned by the parent company of the label for which the soundtrack was released. The soundtrack was a huge success and became Neil Diamond’s biggest selling album in the United States, selling over five million copies and reaching #3 on the pop albums chart. This would mark the second time a Neil Diamond soundtrack outperformed the movie it came from (after Jonathan Livingston Seagull). Three of the songs from the album became Top 10 pop singles, with «Love on the Rocks», «Hello Again» and «America» reaching #2, #6, and #8 respectively.
