Album Notes

Although he hardly looked the part of a big star singer and songwriter, Neil Sedaka wrote sharp, melodic pop songs dealing with the travails and joys of falling in love that were often geared at the teen market but still managed to have enough depth and substance to work in larger listening circles. Many artists had hits with his songs, and his own versions and his own hits revealed a polished recording and arranging pro. This U.K.-issued two-disc set has his biggest early hits, including "Stupid Cupid," "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do," "Oh, Carol," and "Happy Birthday, Sweet Sixteen," among many others. ~ Steve Leggett
