AllMusic Review by

Legendary collects three discs' worth of performances from Neil Sedaka spanning the '50s through the '70s, including "I Go Ape," "Oh! Carol," "Little Devil," "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do," "Next Door to an Angel," and "Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen." Given the size of the set, not every track included here is essential, but fans familiar with his best-known songs will still probably find tracks such as "We Kiss in a Shadow," "Superbird," "Forty Winks Away," and "The World Through a Tear" rewarding. Not surprisingly, some of the later material included here isn't quite as well-known, and in some cases, as memorable as Sedaka's '50s and '60s hits, but overall Legendary is a decent collection for fans willing to immerse themselves in the different phases of his career.
