Neil Diamond 50 - 50th Anniversary Collection is a retrospective of 50 Neil Diamond songs recorded between 1966 and 2014. It was released in March 2017. [2]

Diamond selected the songs for Neil Diamond 50. Its tracks range from the 1966 album The Feel Of Neil Diamond to 2014's Melody Road. A three disc set, with liner notes by David Fricke, it includes songs which Rolling Stone described as "staples in the American pop songbook."[3]

A 50th Anniversary World Tour coincided with the release of the box. It began April 7, 2017 in Fresno, California.[4]
