Product Description

Product Description

The second 4 Seasons album, released right after Sherry (a #6 pop success) and Big Girls Dont Cry (#8), The 4 Seasons Greetings was a surprise success for the group and their record label Vee Jay, eventually hitting as high as #13 on the album chart. For the original release in 1962, the first side of the album featured traditional Christmas songs, sung pretty much as intended, but it was the second side of the album, which featured contemporary material, that really stood out, allowing the group to give full rein to their natural rock and pop tendencies. The resulting album is a tour de force, establishing something of a template for Christmas albums in the years to come (Motown in particular released a series of Christmas albums that were in much the same vein).

I didn't even know that this album existed ! However, safe to say that I wasn't disappointed - all the well-known Christmas tunes given the full treatment by Frankie and the Four seasons.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag of goodies from Santa and The Four Season 24 Aug 2014
By J.R. Shumacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
So far we've got a 1-star review and a 5-star review. I'm going for the middle with 3 stars. This album is a very mixed bag. For the first half you can hardly tell it's the Four Seasons because they went with a *very* traditional approach on both the music and singing. Frankie Valli's voice rarely rises above the rest of the group. The first half sound like it could have been done by any competent group of choir boys. And those cuts are not bad... very Christmissy and all... I'm sure their mothers liked them. Then, in the second half of the album, the Four Seasons as we know them start coming out, slowly at first, but getting stronger and finally delivering some excellent "Four Seasons Christmas Songs".

So, I was disappointed at first but by the end it was working for me. All except the stupid "Jungle Bells" (spelling is correct, unfortunately). I guess this was some kind of weird Jersey boys idea of humor. Thankfully the Four Seasons never tried an awful stunt like this on any of their 'real' albums. What were they thinking? I'm sure their Moms were not any more amused than I was by this little ditty.

I will probably have to make a back up CD of this disc and eliminate "Jungle Bells" from the list -- but overall it's a good album to toss in the Christmas season shuffle. But I won't be listening to it at any other time -- which was pretty much the point of these Seasonal releases. The sound quality on the disc seems maybe a little "thin" to me... like there should be more depth to it? But I don't have the vinyl and it may well have sounded this like originally. Nothing wrong with the transfer to CD really, it just seems like there could have been more to the dynamics of the sound, this being the Four Seasons and all... but then, there could have been more to the whole thing.

AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL!!! So bad it made me wince! There were times when one of the singer's voices actually went flat! Threw it out.
