Neil Sedaka

The Hung Jury entry brought up Neil Sedaka's name. The prolific singer/songwriter had a somewhat influential effect on several Colgems artists, as did many Brill Building alumni.

"When Love Comes Knockin' At Your Door" was recorded by The Monkees, and several other of his tunes were recorded by them. He also had music recorded by The Hung Jury and others. His tunes were co-written, with long-time writing partner Howard Greenfield and with Carole Bayer.

I'll put one of his Colgems tunes up later.
