While many Neil Sedaka compilations focus on either the Brill Building pop crooner's youthful 1950/'60s heyday or his '70s easy-listening comeback, 2007's DEFINITIVE COLLECTION includes both of those eras and even extends into the '90s, making it a set that truly lives up to its title. Book-ended by two distinctly different versions of his hit "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do," the lively original and a slow, smooth later rendition, this 18-track anthology is perfect for the casual Sedaka fan.
