The Good Times is a 1986 album by American pop singer Neil Sedaka. It was originally issued on the Curb label in the US and by Precision Records and Tapes Ltd. in the UK.[1]

With one exception, the album consists almost entirely of material co-written by Neil Sedaka and his daughter Dara, and she is featured singing duets with her father in two tracks. The one exception is a new version of Sedaka's 1975 hit, "The Hungry Years", which he co-wrote with Howard Greenfield.

Both of these albums fared poorly on the charts and in sales, with only modest success for the singles released from those albums. After 1986, Sedaka was once again left without a record label. He then created his own music label, ensuring that his catalog of hits would find the marketplace, and he released occasional CDs of self-produced new, original material. .
