Record #0149: Let’s Go Steady Again/ Waiting For Never (La Terza Luna) – NEIL SEDAKA

RCA Victor 47-8169 (original) USA, Apr. 1963
Words & Music by:  Side A – Neil Sedaka, Howard Greenfield; Side B – Ronnie Grossman, Louis Enriquez Bacalov
Musicians:  Neil Sedaka (vocals) and an orchestra conducted by Alan Lorber (on side A), an unknown orchestra on side B.
Recording sessions:  RCA Victor Studio, New York, NY, Side A – Jan. 3, 1963; Side B – Sep. 1962 (vocals only, as the backing track was recorded earlier in Italy)
Highest chart positions:  US #26, US R&B #21, UK #42

Sedaka’s charting success was slowly but surely entering slumberland for about 10 years around the time that this piece came out. This was still a moderate success, though. 

Sedaka came back in 1974 with US #1 single “Laughter In the Rain”

List price:  Very Good + is $6, Near Mint $12
