Editorial Reviews

Now immortalized in the Tonyr winning Broadway musical Jersey Boys, Rock and Roll Hall of The Four Seasons wrote their own songs, invented their own identity and sold 175 million records worldwide . . .all before they were thirty. Spanning 1962 to 1978, this hit packed features pop #1 Seasons gems including 'Big Girls Don't Cry,' 'Sherry' and 'December, 1963 (Oh What A Night),' as well as the Frankie Valli solo chart-toppers 'My Eyes Adored You' and 'Grease.'

Customer Reviews

Brings back great memories.

Of course the theatrical production 'Jersey Boys' helped to resurrect their music, and that's a good thing.
CQ DX
Nice collection of songs with most of The 4 Seasons greatest hits.

If you're wondering what the differences are between the many CDs of greatest hits of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (FV&4S), perhaps your research time can be shortened by checking these findings (from an afternoon spent not doing necessary chores, but instead copying and comparing various song lists to see which CD is missing any must-haves). Any prices I note are for used items in good or better condition with the $3 shipping included.

I chose FV&4S The Definitive Pop Collection ($11, 2006, Rhino label, mainly brown squares on cover--I mention color to make it easier to quickly find and click between the CDs). It has 30 hit songs on 2 discs and all positive reviews (and a good price).

Note the above is not The Definitive FV&4S. ($12, 2007, Rhino label, import, purple/red) This one has 26 songs on one disc; nice to have all on one disc-- didn't know so many could fit. Most are the same and in the same order as the above Definitive Pop, but a few are substituted and four are dropped. For a buck more. No thank you.

The Very Best of FV&4S: Jersey Boys ($15, 2008, 101 Distribution label, import, mainly red) is almost identical to Definitive, even in song order, with 30 songs on 2 discs (and only 3 reviews, but all positive). The label either copied Definitive or it is related to Rhino. Did not choose because it is $4 more, and Definitive has Silence is Golden and The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine while Jersey Boys substitutes You're Ready Now and The Night. (For me, Silence clinched it; listened to the 30 second samples of the other three and was not familiar with them.)

The Very Best of FV&4S ($11, 2003, Rhino label, mainly blue) is a shorter version of Definitive, with 20 songs on one disc, in about the some order, and all positive reviews.

Frankie Valli & The 4 Seasons are an American pop music gem! Their music helped define a whole era and musical genre, and they sound just as great today as they did back then. Of course the theatrical production 'Jersey Boys' helped to resurrect their music, and that's a good thing. These songs are absolutely timeless, and just as importantly, this recording sounds GREAT! Obviously, the 'brass' at Rhino Records did a meticulous job of transferring and remastering these great songs, and they jump out of your speakers with clarity and energy i've never heard before! And yes, CD's DO sound better than MP3's because of better dynamic range and less compression.

After seeing "The Jersey Boys" I knew I had to get some of their music. I chose "The Definitive Pop Collection" because the two disks had most of their well known hits. (30 tunes all together) I have been playing these disks constantly, and I guess you could say that I am addicted!!! HA!!!
The music is so GREAT!!!!

I shopped around for a good Four Seasons collection, and found this one to be the best value. It includes all of the great hits that I remember from my youth, as well as some others that I don't recall hearing before, but that point out the great talent that the Seasons had. The quality of the sound is very good.

After watching Jersey Boys in London I rediscovered my love for the music of the Four Seasons, and sought a collection of their big hits. I found several here on Amazon, but this was the most comprehensive, and it's the only one that contains every song featured in the musical. Fantastic collection, well worth the money - I listen to it all the time! Take it from THIS Jersey boy; this set is the goods!

I had forgotten how much I liked the Four Seasons until I saw Jersey Boys. This collection brings back all of the good memories. Wonderful!

I saw the production Jersey Boys in Las Vegas in November and just loved it as the oldies brought back many memories. This particular cd sold for $25.00 in the Jersey Boy Store in Vegas.
