Neil Sedaka never gets the respect that he deserves because he's a man out of time. Pop was his medium, whether it was 45s or individual songs, and when they're collected as a body of work as they are on Bear Family's eight-disc Oh Carol: The Complete Recordings 1956-1966, the result is a little exhausting. There are two problems: the first is that his non-hit material is simply not as strong as his hits, but that's not the big problem - no, the big problem is that half of this set is dedicated to non-English recordings, which is solely the province of archivists and completists.
