The vocal group that became the Four Seasons went through many personnel changes and a couple of record labels before naming themselves after a New Jersey bowling alley. A failed 1961 single didn't do well, but when keyboardist/guitarist Bob Gaudio came up with a tune that he and producer Bob Crewe chose to call "Sherry," things really started happening. Lead singer Frankie Valli negotiated with Vee Jay Records to release this record. When it received airplay a deal with Vee jay was inked, making the boys this label's first white singing group.

"Sherry" went to #1 and so did follow-ups "Big Girls Don't Cry" and "Walk Like a Man." The Four Season phenomenon was in full swing. Until the Beatles hit big in Feb.'64, they were America's most successful pop/rock band. Royalty issues with Vee Jay resulted in the Seasons leaving in January of 1964 for Philips. Rights to all of their Vee Jay era recordings reverted to Frankie and the guys when their old label declared bankruptcy two years later.

Released in November of 1966, 2ND VAULT OF GOLDEN HITS (PHS 600-221 / PHM 200-221) contains mostly Vee Jay recordings. It's a rare case where a sequel "best of" LP exceeds the first volume (released late in '65) because the songs on it are OLDER and from a different company. (NOTE: Their 12/63 cover of Maurice Williams' "Stay" didn't chart while backed with "Peanuts," but did reach #16 two months later when the flip was "Goodnight My Love." The band was so popular back then, DJs often played both sides of singles, resulting in several 'B's making Billboard's Hot 100.

"Big Girls Don't Cry" may be the ultimate 4 Seasons record. "Connie-O' is a group harmony number with a haunting melody. The instrumental opening of "Working My Way Back To You" has a Motown feel.

contains some of the more difficult to find four seasons hits including "Connie O" which shows howwell the group can also perform harmony.

The second of the Philips Compilation LPs of The 4 Seasons hits (their earlier recordings from VeeJay and later Philips recordings) is another excellent example of their work. Goes great with the Gold Vault of Hits!

An excellent collection, and even better for simply replicating the original vinyl album by having just 12 tracks. Well done to whomever thought this up!

My friend loves the 4 Seasons and somehow in moving she lost her cd's of them. This is a great and affordable way to get a gift for someone who loves this group.

I enjoyed listening to the 4 Seasons when growing up so I purchased a couple of CD's of their music. I have other music from those days I need to look into also.
