5.0 out of 5 stars Preview The Song Samples Before Buying, October 4, 2011
This review is from: Seasons Greetings: A Jersey Boys Christmas (Audio CD)
First off, for me this is a five star album. I love the sound and I love Christmas music. However, the title of the album, while possibly technically accurate, is more than misleading. The songs are presented by cast members, current and previous, of various companies of the Broadway show and touring companies of "Jersey Boys". However, the album does not represent the style many buyers will be expecting (Frankie Valli & the 4 Seasons) on most of the songs. There are a couple of performances that utilize the famous Valli falsetto. But for the most part the album is a much better (and more accurate) representation of 50's & 60's styles of music than of any specific group. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the album (actually I find it quite good) but any potential buyer should listen to the track samples prior to purchase because if they are expecting seventeen Christmas songs done in the style of "Frankie Valli & the 4 Seasons" they are going to be terribly disappointed. The Four Seasons have a Christmas album of their own (from the original group - recorded in the 60's) that is readily available on Amazon at about 1/5 of the cost of this CD. That isn't to suggest you not purchase "Seasons Greetings: A Jersey Boys Christmas" only that you know in advance what you'll be getting in order to avoid possible disappointment.

Read your review - very well put. If you like Christmas music AND Theater, check out the new mp3 album, Everything Christmas: The Christmas Songs of Jeffrey Cornell featuring original songs sung by great theater vocalists like David Burnham, Julie Garnyť, Michelle Duffy, and Daniel Tatar.

Thanks for the tip but I don't currently download music ( i'm old and like to have a disc). Hope you know about the Broadway Cares "Carols For A Cure"series of CD's performed by the original casts of virtually every show on Broadway during the past 11 years.
