Product Description:

The photographs on the front and back covers and on the inside of this budget-priced British album depict a young Neil Sedaka from his late-'50s/early-'60s commercial heyday, and the implication of the packaging is clearly that this is a collection of his greatest hits from that era. The potential customer has to read the small print on the back cover to see that the disc consists of "live concert recordings," and the inclusion of some of Sedaka's comeback hits of the '70s, such as "Bad Blood," in the track list indicates it must have been recorded in that decade or later. In fact, Sedaka spends very little time on the "oldies but goodies" of his early days, as he puts it when introducing five of them in a medley that makes up the fourth track. Otherwise, this is all material that comes from Sedaka's mid-'70s albums -- Sedaka's Back, The Hungry Years, and Steppin' Out. The music is more sophisticated than it was a decade-and-a-half earlier, and more in the mold of Elton John. This was also a successful period for Sedaka, but it is not the period that the packaging suggests. ~ William Ruhlmann
