A funny one on this song - I have been a Neil Diamond fan since I was 8 years old and last summer saw him for the 10th time. Back a bit, a few years after UB40 came out with their version of Red Red Wine, my friend's brother was saying what a "rad" song this was. I said I liked this version, but still loved the Neil Diamond one better. The brother looked at me puzzled and said "oh, did he make a cover of it too?" He thought UB40 wrote it and that it was always a regae song!
Marley actually never recorded it, but I believe he did it live.
