    Description

    Carole King "Oh, Neil" 45 Alpine 57 (1959). Neil Sedaka and Carole King were already recording veterans, Neil having recorded with the Tokens in 1956 at age 17, and Carole releasing a solo record in 1958 at age 16, when the two wunderkinder each released songs in 1959 written for the other. The big difference was Sedaka's, "Oh! Carol!", was a hit, climbing to #9 on Billboard's Hot 100, while King's tune was heard mostly by friends and relatives! Of course King eventually was a hugely successful songwriter, with credits for hits from the late 1950s and throughout the 1960s, and solo scored a #22 hit in 1962 with "It Might As Well Rain Until September". She finally was recognized as one of Pop music's superstars with the release of the album "Tapestry" in 1971. The album was #1 for 15 weeks and on the Billboard 200 for 302 weeks! "Oh, Neil" offers a glimpse of the 17-year old just getting started. It's a rare record and this copy is in superior condition. Condition: EX 7.
