Offered for sale is a sealed copy of Neil Diamond’s 1971 LP, Do It! issued on Bang Records.
About this record: The copy of Do It! offered for sale is new and still sealed; the record is presumably unplayed. The wrap is fully intact with no rips or tears, though the cover does have a cut corner in the lower right hand corner.
A nice copy of a somewhat scarce compilation album.
Background: Neil Diamond only recorded two albums for Bang, The Feel of Neil in 1966 and Just For You the following year. After the release of the second album, Diamond had a falling out with label chief Bert Berns and moved on to sign a contract with Universal City Records, where he saw great success.
To take advantage of Diamond’s success at his new label, Bang repackaged earlier material no fewer than four times. Do It! was the third release of such material, issued in 1971, and it’s somewhat hard to find today.
