Oh, immer noch kein Review?
So unbekannt ist das doch gar nicht! Im Gegenteil! In jedem Rock 'n Roll Schuppen ein Muss.
Und ich finde diesen Song sackstark!
***
Ja, aber bekannter ist die Version von den Monkeys - und besser!

interessante Coverversion
*****
Nicht schlecht, auch diese Version. Eine knappe 5. Die Bläser gefallen mir.

Er hat es für die Monkees geschrieben, (also kann es auch kein Cover in dem Sinn sein) und war damit selbst 4 Jahre später #4 (A) #23 (D, NL) im August 1971 erfolgreich!
Auch hier schreibt man gute Laune groß - sehr gut!

...sehr gut...
****
Ich muss zugeben: von den Monkees (man beachte die Schreibweise) besser!
*****
Nein, auch hier ist die Version von N.D. die beste!
*****
Sehr gut!
****
▒ Goede versie van "I'm A Believer" door "Neil Diamond" !!! Eind juli / begin augustus had hij er een bescheiden hitje mee in de Nederlandse hitlijsten !!! Persoonlijk hoor ik toch liever de versie van "The Monkey's" !!! (NL Top 40: 4 wk / # 23) ☺!!!
*****
gut
****
Ich finde die beiden Versionen in etwa gleich gut. Beidesmal gute 4*
*****
Sorry, aber ich habe imer einen Horror vor Coverversionen, egal welcher Titel und gerade Neil Diamond Titel wurden mehr als nötig gecovert, denn an seine Originale kommt keiner ran, auch die Monkees nicht, obwohl ND den Titel damals extra für sie schrieb für ihre TV Serie. Ich habe boch keinen Titel von ND gehört, der als Coverversion besser war als sein Original, nicht mal von Cliff Richard (das will bei mir was heißen), der einige Titel von ihm coverte. ND bleibt ND, für mich einer der größten in der Popgeschichte.
*****
...sehr gut...
*****
schöner Song
*****
Mag een 5
*****
I believe in our Swiss Nati, Hopp Schwiiz !! :)

Natürlich ein guter Song vom guten alten Neil D......
***
De uitvoering van The Monkees vind ik leuker.
*****
... sehr gut ... Original bleibt eben Orginal, auch wenn es erst nach dem Cover erfolgreich ist.
*****
Mir gefallen die Monkees noch besser damit.
*****
Die Stimme macht's.
******
Ich bewerte die 2010-Version.
Die find ich klasse, weil dieses Lied soundmäßig so anders ist als das Original.
Einen extra-Punkt gibt es dafür , dass er sich selbst als Autor covert ... bzw. die Monkees.
****
Passt schon
***
die Version von den Monkees gefällt mir klar besser, – 3*...
******
Ein Song, den es bekanntlich in verschiedenen Versionen zu bestaunen gibt. Neben den beiden am letzten Mittwoch im Zürcher Hallenstadion präsentierten Eckpolen - zart-balladesk und retro-rockig - habe ich vorliegend die '79-Version aus dem Album "September Morn'" zur Hand, welche als entspannt-hausgemachte Kompromisslösung der beiden erwähnten stilistischen Extrempositionen bezeichnet werden kann. Wie auch immer: Das Basiswerk als Solches ist unzweifelhaft stark; alles Andere als die Höchstwertung wäre falsch.
****
Solid track for Diamond but i feel the Monkees do it better.
****
Eines von den vielen ND-Stücken, die ich gut hören kann aber aufgrund seiner vielen wirklich überragenden Stücke nicht besser bewerten will. Auf jeden Fall ist mir diese Version von ihm genauso lieb wie die der Monkees. Seine moderne Version gefällt mir nicht so - bin halt an das schmissige Tempo gewöhnt.
*****
gefällt mir sehr gut
****

Beter dan van de Monkees.
****
... noch okay ...
******
Fundstück aus meiner alten Vinyl-Sammlung. Nach seinen ersten großen Erfolgen in Europa (Cracklin' Rosie, Sweet Caroline, I am... I said), veröffentlichte seine alte Plattenfirma diesen Titel, den Neil Diamond 1967 für die Monkees geschrieben hatte, erneut. Mit (kleinem) Erfolg: In Deutschland und Holland TOP 30.
Für mich schöner als die Monkees-Version.
****
ganz gut anhörbar...
******
Großartiger Ami-Schlager
*****
...nachdem es die Monkees flott eingespielt hatten, hat Mr.Diamond seinen Song wunderbar gemütlich und besinnlich interpretiert - einfach wunder-wunderschön -...5+
****
Finde ich ebenfalls von The Monkees besser. Aufgerundete 4.

CDN: #61, 1971
USA: #51, 1971
*****
Gut
*****
schöner Song, gut gemacht, dennoch gefällt mir das Original der Monkees einen Tick besser
****
Beide Versionen sind irgendwie gleich gut. 4+
****
gut
*****

Sehr gutes Cover.
*****
Den lässigen Beat-Klassiker hat Komponist Neil Diamond gleich in drei unterschiedlichen Studioversionen vorgelegt, wiewohl das Original, also die Erstveröffentlichung, bei den Monkees liegt. Eine Enttäuschung ist für mich die im reggaesken Midtempogesäusel verharrende 79er-Version. Gelungen finde ich hingegen sowohl das beatige Original als auch die geerdete Neuauflage des 2010er-Albums "Dreams". In der Summe passt meinerseits die 5 mit deutlicher Tendenz zu mehr.
****
Toll gecovert, die Monkees sind besser.
