If in doubt of their genius, the evidence is all here; from the early hits that made the Four Seasons the East Coast's equivalent of the Beach Boys ("Sherry", "Big Girls Don't Cry", "Walk Like A Man", "Rag Doll") thru their late, brief and commercially unsuccessful '60s - yes! - psychedelic period (the amazing yet overlooked "Saturday's Father") onto the balladry of "Patch of Blue" and "The Girl I'll Never Know" (although Frankie's solo "Fallen Angel" is one notable omission here) and, on the comeback trail, their lucriative forays into seventies disco ("Who Loves You", "December 1963", "Grease").
And even when the Seasons covered the "classics" - "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", "I've Got You Under My Skin" - they still managed to come out on top and reinvent in their own style material which "definitive" readings of (The Shirelles and Frank Sinatra, respectively) had already been around for a good while. With most other acts, such attempts prove disastrous.
Mostly, though, other acts have looked to the Gaudio/Crewe archives when in need of hits.Read more ›
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, Night (a track recorded for Motown), Who loves you, December '63 Oh what a night (their only British number one hit), Silver star and Grease.
Aside from their own hits, covers of their songs were also successful for others. Four of their songs were UK number one hits for others - Silence is golden (Tremeloes), The sun ain't gonna shine anymore (Walker brothers), Bye bye baby (Bay city rollers) and Working my way back to you (Spinners). The original versions of all these songs are included here - and they are all brilliant. They also recorded some excellent covers of their own including I've got you under my skin and Will you love me tomorrow.
This is the ultimate compilation of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, one of the best American groups of the sixties and seventies.
