Liner Note Author: Michael Heatley.
In April of 2006, Neil Sedaka held court at the Royal Albert Hall, working with nothing more than a grand piano and the occasional guest (Tony Christie showed up for "Is This the Way to Amarillo," which was rocketing up the U.K. charts in 2006, while his own daughter popped up "through the magic of video" for "Should Have Never Let You Go"). Sedaka sang most of his hits -- sadly, "Bad Blood" did not make the final cut -- and not only is his voice strong and supple but he commands the crowd with ease, tossing off tunes and jokes with aplomb. It sounds like a good night out and for the fan at home, it's fun stuff. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
