Album Review

Neil Sedaka's entry in RCA/Legacy's Love Songs series is a nice little collection of hits and obscurities from the first stage of Sedaka's career. The 14 tracks date from 1958 to 1964 and include two of his biggest hits: "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do" and the buoyant "Oh! Carol."

No matter, this still is a nice collection from a truly under-rated artist.
