AllMusic Review by

BGO's 2012 two-fer pairs Neil Sedaka's 1973 album The Tra-La Days Are Over and the 1975 Overnight Success. The first album finds Sedaka backed by 10cc -- who initially supported him on 1972's Solitaire -- and the second was released as The Hungry Years in the U.S. as his first LP for the Elton John imprint Rocket. Both capture Sedaka as a somewhat savvier mainstream pop tunesmith than his reputation might initially suggest.
