AllMusic Review by

A fine rhythmic pianist with a thin, high voice that he strengthened by multi-tracking, Neil Sedaka turned his Brill Building pop smarts and doo wop influences into a long and successful career, and most of his hits show up here in this generous 40-track collection, including 1959's "Oh! Carol," 1960's "Calendar Girl," 1962's "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do" (the slower remake from 1976 is also collected here), and 1975's "Laughter in the Rain." The end result is all the Sedaka most folks will ever need.
