New 4 Seasons’ Rhino Boxed Set Coming Soon!

March 28th, 2007

Here’s some exciting news from the Arts, Briefly section of today’s New York Times:

Fans of the Tony Award-winning hit Broadway musical Jersey Boys will get plenty of its source material on June 5, when Rhino Records releases the boxed set “Jersey Beat — The Music of Frankie Valli & the 4 Seasons.” The three CDs, featuring the lead singer Frankie Valli, the guitarist Tommy DeVito, the bassist Nick Massi and the keyboardist Bob Gaudio, include 76 tracks of the band’s biggest hits and will be accompanied by a DVD of rare live performances, an 86-page booklet and other material.


  1. One of the innumerable reasons to buy this boxed set is to read the contribution made to it by our very own Susie Skarl, the creator and moderator of this marvelous blog. That’s the only hint I’ll give until June 5……..Charles Alexander

  2. Can’t wait! Considering it’s from the original tracks, it will be something to listen to for a very long time! I’d also hope for a DVD that either Broadway or National Tour produces. If I had a choice, I’d watch the Jersey Boys every evening at the Curran!

    This play deserves every accolade they earned!

  3. Words cannot describe how happy I am about this. The Four Seasons never got the respect they deserved, which is a shame. If it weren’t for the Beatles, the Four Seaons could’ve had a few more number-one hits.

  4. Charles, what are you saying??? Susie Skarl!!
    We certainly aren’t surprised that she would be the perfect contributor in a number of areas, but how cruel and… intriguing that you’ve left us in the dark like this.

    OK, very important. There are two types of women, Type A and Type B. You listening?
    Type A has known and loved the Four Seasons since she was a kid heavily influenced by her brother and mother’s love of the group’s timeless music. Type B is a Blogger Extraordinaire with every bit (and that’s saying a lot) of breaking news on the Four Seasons and the super, mega-hit, Jersey Boys not only in New York but in California and, no doubt, around the world given a little time.

    I’ll be waiting for June 5th, alright. Susie, you never cease to amaze us all!

  5. I also will be looking forward to this boxed set. However, does anyone know when the “new” Frankie Valli CD will be released? And is there anyway to get released the vaulted recordings during the Motown years? I would love to hear those tunes.
