1991 Neil Diamond – Lovescape

Lovescape is the nineteenth studio album by the American singer Neil Diamond. Released in 1991, it peaked at number 44 on the Billboard 200. “Hooked on the Memory of You” was a duet with Kim Carnes, while “Don’t Turn Around” was co-written by Diane Warren. It is the last album, till 12 Songs, to credit him with playing guitar, but he may have possibly contributed some uncredited guitar work on previous or subsequent albums.
