  2. The Grammy isn’t big enough for all the talent this album channels. It represents an ongoing body of work that ‘did not spring to life fully formed the day’ the Grammys showed up with an award. Congratulations to Bob Gaudio for bringing excellence to everything he does. As always, he was in the company of many creative, dedicated and hard working people!

  3. To see all of this happening in 2007 is incredible. I’m loving every minute of it.
    Having been a Four Seasons fan since the early 1960′s, this truly is ‘Too good to be true’.
    A new generation of fans can listen to their great music and enjoy the talents of this group.
    Having been over shadowed by the British invasion of the mid 60′s, they have managed to persevere and now have a smash hit on Broadway.
    ‘Can’t take my eyes off of you’ was my wedding song.
    The words and harmony of this group live on even though they didn’t get the recognition that they richly deserved. Sometimes nice guys do finish first.

  6. It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy…and I truly mean that! My husband and I saw the show for the first time last March. Afterwards, we were outside the August Wilson theatre taking pictures next to some of the signs. Bob Gaudio and his wife came walking down the sidewalk and he asked if he could pose with me! He took time to autograph my Plabill and chat a few minutes. What a kindhearted man and a sweet, understanding lady to take the extra time to connect with a fan! The music is wonderful and congratulations to Bob, the multi-talented cast, and the technical crew who produced the album!

  8. Most sincere congratulations, Bob et al. Bob, I’d love to see you write and produce some new material directly for the “Boys”, either together or individually, and one more hit for Frankie Valli himself. I understand that one more entry for Frankie on the Billboard charts would make him the only artist to have a charted hit in six decades (remember that “Oh What a Night” charted again for 27 weeks in 1994, in addition to its 27 weeks in 1975, and “The Apple of My Eye” charted in the 1950′s).

  11. It is ABOUT TIME!!! After years of listening to crap that was winning awards real music finally comes through as a winner. Congrats Mr. Gaudio ,it is very long over due . Your hard work shines through. Mr.Valli ,what can anyone say. You stuck to what you believed in and finally it has all come together. Again congrats to you as well. I grew up listening to the 4 Seasons ,went to as many concerts as I could attend and always wondered why no one gave the group the nod they really deserved. Frankie, keep that “bunny battery” charged up. To hear the 4 Seasons /Jersey Boys and all associated with this project ,well it is what I have waited many years for.
    Just an FYI to all out there ,pick up a copy of the Live Jersey Concert from 1980.Back then it was picked as the BEST live recording of it’s time.

  12. Yes Bob N, it is about time and long overdue. Of all the slights that have occurred over the years as far as music awards are concerned, the most egregious to me is that the 4 Seasons did not win a Grammy for best new artist in 1962. Two #1 songs in a row in 1962 and a big Christmas hit thrown in and still no award. The winner for Best New Artist for 1962 you ask….Robert Goulet.

    Congratulations Mr. Gaudio.

  13. I just saw Jersey Boys in Raleigh with my 19 year old daughter yesterday. What a wonderful show. The music was a little before my time and my of course my daughters, but she had heard every song. She loved the show. The music is timeless. What a great story. Thank you for bringing us such a great show and music. I think we were the only people there that it was the first time to see the show. The lady sitting next to me had seen it five times. I have already gotten a ticket for closing night. Again what a wonderful show many thanks.
