45 rpm singles[edit]

The title track, "All You Need Is The Music", saw a 45 rpm release, but it did not chart. Neither did the single "Sad, Sad Story" (b/w "Love Keeps Getting Stronger Every Day" in the UK and "Tillie The Twirler" in the US).

CD Re-issue from vinyl[edit]

In 2013, a bootleg album was released on CD in selected European Union countries, from vinyl. [1]


Two years later, Sedaka would take the song "Should've Never Let Her Go", and rework it into a duet with his daughter Dara under the title "Should've Never Let You Go" for the 1980 album In The Pocket; this duet version would be much more warmly received than the original version heard here on All You Need Is The Music.
