    Diamond Gets Warm Reception in Kiel Show
    By Robert Holden

    Guitar-strumming vocalist Neil Diamond performed before about 1,000 aging teen-agers and young adults Friday evening at Kiel Opera House.

    His program of ballads and loud country rock songs included the current hit, “Holly Holy,” along with past hits, “Solitary Man” and “Sweet Caroline.”

    The handsome, slim-hipped native of Brooklyn was backed by drums and two amplified guitars. The two guitarists, one of them a girl, Carol Hunter, also supplied vocal harmonizing to Diamond’s renditions.

    Sensitive in his ballads and hard-driving on his rock tunes, Diamond was warmly received by his youthful admirers–many of whom appeared to be affectionate couples.

    Preceding Diamond on the bill was Albert Brooks, a fresh-faced comedian not much older than his audience. He is so new that he was able to introduce the act, walk off stage and reappear to startled applause.

    Brooks has appeared on the “Tonight” show and “The Dean Martin Show” on TV recently.
