In Honor of Nick Massi’s Birthday–Check Out 4 Seasons Great Rendition of Oh, Carol!

September 19th, 2015

As we continue to honor the late Nick Massi on his birthday today, check out The Four Seasons’ rendition of “Oh, Carol”–with Nick’s amazing vocal arrangements, bass vocals, and his spoken lines! Truly one of my favorites from the “Sherry & 11 Others” album!

Do you have a favorite Four Seasons’ song that really shows off Nick Massi’s vocal arrangements, his phenomenal bass vocals or his bass guitar? Let us know & we’ll post it!



  1. The stage version of “Mack The Knife” sung by Nick is fantastic. It can be found on the 4 Seasons “Live on Stage” Vee Jay album.

    While speaking of Nick’s many talents let’s not forget his writing…listen to the wonderful “Living Just For You” which can be heard on the “4 Seasons Entertain You” album on Philips, and again on the “Working My Way Back To You” album.

  2. David,

    You are so right. Mack the knife is fantastic I can say the same for “Don’t Let Go”.

    That would be nice to put out there for those who never heard it. Dad nailed those songs….

  3. David, You’re right–The 4 Seasons version of Mack the Knife is indeed fantastic! Looks like someone posted it on Youtube. Nick & his fellow Seasons sound amazing:

  4. Another great song from the “Live” album featuring Nick, and all the Seasons doing solos, is “How Do You Make a Hit Song.” Great stage routine. The audience loved it.

  5. I was thinking of Nick last night while watching the movie “Shenandoah” with Jimmy Stewart. I noted that the song “Little Pony (Get Along)” originally by Nick Massi(as Alex Alda), predated the movie by four years. The song also captures the feelings of Jimmy Stewart’s character in the movie, and from a very similar point of view, during the Civil War.
