I convinced a friend who's going to LV to see JB. She's too young to have lived thru the music, but when she looked the program over, she said what all the reviews and interviews mention, that she recognized many of the song titles but didn't realize they were all by the Four Seasons. Still, I doubt she knows them really well.
I don't like hearing songs for the first time when I see a show - I can't really appreciate them unless I'm already familiar with them, so I will usually get a CD first and get to know the music ahead of time. But for JB, I feel the CD "gives away" too much of the dialog which I think an audience member should hear the first time during the show, not before. So...
I decided the best thing would be to make her a CD of the Four Seasons' recordings of the hit songs from the show. I also included the Rays' original version of Silhouettes, and the Angels doing MBB.
What do you think? What have you done? I hope you don't give away the best lines, ha ha ha.
