Record label of Australian release:
Wheeling West Virginia was a single on Neil Sedaka’s album Workin’ on a Groovy Thing, recorded while he was touring Australia in late 1969 for Australian label Festival Records.
By that time his career had slumped, and his contract had not been renewed by his former label in the USA, RCA Victor. It was recorded in Festival’s studios in Sydney, co-produced by Sedaka and Festival house producer Pat Aulton. The LP featured many notable Australian session players of the period including guitarist Jimmy Doyle (later a member of jazz-rock band Ayers Rock) and veteran jazz musician John Sangster.
