5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality pop music, May 15, 2008
This review is from: The Very Best of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons: Jersey's Best (Audio CD)
Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons were hugely successful in America, where they had a long string of major hits, especially in the sixties. They were less successful in Britain but still managed seven top ten hits including a number one. Here you can find all the classics. From the sixties, there are Sherry, Big girls don't cry, Walk like a man, Rag doll, Let's hang on and many others. From the seventies, there are My eyes adored you, Who loves you, Night (a track recorded for Motown), December '63 Oh what a night (their only British number one hit) and Grease. One obvious omission from the seventies is Silver star (a UK top three hit).

Aside from their own hits, covers of their songs were also successful for others, four of them becoming UK number one hits via covers. The original Four Seasons versions of The sun ain't gonna shine anymore (Walker brothers), Silence is golden (Tremeloes), Bye bye baby (Bay city rollers) and Working my way back to you (Detroit Spinners) are all included here.

This is an excellent double CD collection of music by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, one of the best American groups of the sixties and seventies, released to coincide with opening of the West End musical Jersey Boys. Please note that a 3CD+DVD set covering the music of the Four Seasons in much more detail is available for those who want it and can afford the extra cost.

Pete, Frankie and the Four Seasons were one of the groups that defined the Sixties, and it was a pleasure to read your informative review. Every one of the hits you mentioned is in my collection and also lodged in my memories. Thanks for jump-starting the tunes for me.
