    Foxboro festival small, but lively

    Foxboro Raceway played host to some 700 persons Sunday as Neil Diamond, John Mayall, Motherlode and the Holy Modal Rounders were featured in the first Fall Music Festival in Foxboro.

    Neil Diamond, neatly attired in all black, played and sang earnestly, all the while gyrating and rocking with the music he produced.

    He did many of his hits including “I Got the Feeling,” “Thank the Lord for the Night Time,” “Cherry Cherry” and “Sweet Caroline.” “Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show” contained an emotionally packed monologue in the middle of the song which helped to win the artist a standing ovation at the conclusion.

    Diamond’s back-up band, consisting of bass, drum and female guitarist and vocalist, aided immensely.
