  • Neil Sedaka:  Rock N Roll Survivor Book
    Item #: S6AM07
    Neil Sedaka: Rock N Roll Survivor Book “From 1958 to 1963, Neil Sedaka sold 25 million records – more than anyone except Elvis Presley. He thought he could do no wrong. A year later, however, he was all but off the charts, swept away by The Beatles and the British Invasion. The deejays stopped playing his records, and the public stopped buying them. For 12 agonizing years, Sedaka battled to get back on the charts – back to respectability. Then, one magical night, he performed at the Royal Albert Hall in London, and his new songs were greeted with thunderous applause. Soon, Elton John, the biggest rock’n'roll star of the decade, was offering to sign Neil to his new label, Rocket Records. Then, in Janaury 1975, ‘Laughter in the Rain’ hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100, sealing one of the most amazing comebacks in music history. This vivid and authoritative book, written with full access to Sedaka and those closest to him, tells the absorbing story of how he overcame one obstacle after another on his way back to the top. With a foreword by Elton John and an afterword by songwriter Phil Cody, this is the story of the ultimate rock ‘n’ roll survivor.”

Neil has always been my favorite singer, and it is nice to see that he is still writing new music. This CD is up there with one of his finest. I have downloaded it and will be listening to it many times, I am sure. Great work, Neil! Keep doing what you are doing. You are in a class by yourself and you deserve to be in the Hall of Fame, unlike some of the people that they have been putting in there!

I Do It For Applause is a wonderful CD by Neil Sedaka. He continues to write and perform new music with each release. My favorite song is Super Hottie. I am amazed by his continued energy, and mussicianship. I have been a fan since Stupid Cupid was a hit he wrote for Connie Francis. Sincerely, Kirk Nolting

I have enjoyed Neil Sedaka's music my entire life. He was a big influence on me to become a pianist and I am so grateful that he continues to make new music. I particularly enjoy Joie de Vivre - it's great to hear Neil in a different genre. His music is always uplifting and you can understand the words! I have had the privilege to see Neil in concert a number of times and his love of music is so obvious - this album really sums it up - he does it for applause. Thank you Neil for sharing your talent. You are a gift.
