"One need look no further than Neil's earliest hits to know that something special happens when you set his voice in the middle of a few acoustic guitars: the vibrant expression that lives in the nuances of Neil's singing moves to the forefront and creates a profoundly intimate experience," said Was.

 "The vibe in the studio seems inspired by the folk scene of Neil's early years in Greenwich Village."

Lee added, "He's got such a warm voice like gravy or hot chocolate."

"The moments that worked so well during those sessions were when Neil sat with us and played the songs on the sofa, with his acoustic guitar, and we'd all pick up instruments that were lying about and join in. It was like traditional holiday gathering, when small family groups would sing together at home."

In 1960s, Neil Diamond became one of the major recording artist in the industry. He sold million records worldwide and gold and platinum certifications.

The album Acoustic Christmas will be in stores on October 28, 2016.
