Neil Sedaka is one of those artists who deserves to put out an album of original material at least once a year. His migrating to Elektra may not have been the wisest of moves after all the success at Elton John 's record company, this disc containing the only Top 40 hit from Sedaka 's time with the label that launched the Doors. And that came almost four full years after leaving Rocket Records, a staggering fact when you realize that Sedaka crammed the seven hits of his second wave into a span of less than two years.
Nor is it the best version of that tune. Originally tracked for the effort All You Need Is the Music, produced by Artie Butler and the singer, the solo performance entitled "Should've Never Let Her Go" shimmers and shines, proving that a good song is a good song and that this song is really special. Also confusing things is the co-write with daughter Dara Neil Sedaka - In The Pocket"You're So Good for Me," which is a surprisingly superb effort. Co-writer Phil Cody comes up with a gem with the words to "Letting Go" while the late Howard Greenfield contributes the classic "My Friend," destined to become the title track of the best-of tribute to Greenfield after his passing.
When they dip into a bit of disco, the energy dissipates. It's production from Robert Appere and Sedaka reunited with some of the phenomenal session men from the "Laughter in the Rain" and Rocket Records glory days. Elektra's success with Tony Orlando in this genre was in those glory days, and by the time Sedaka Neil Sedaka - In The Pocket at his new home, Queen were reigning on Neil Sedaka - In The Pocket charts.
