My review title pretty much says it all. This CD does offer a good glimpse at the group(s) who were to eventually become the Four Seasons. Frankie Valli's vocals are just as fantastic on these early tracks as they are on the later Seasons records, and the instrumentation is terrific. The CD also features very informative (but almost microscopic) liner notes. The big problem with the CD is its length. Like I said, it gives a good glimpse at the Four Lovers, but it's a pretty brief glimpse --- the disc only has 14 tracks, and the running time is only 34 minutes. This, combined with the fact that there is a whole lot more Four Lovers material than is on the CD, kind of makes the CD seem more like a "budget" release than a "major" one. I know this CD is a "very best of," and that it doesn't claim to have everything they released (or didn't release) on it, but these days a CD, even if it's a "very best of," really needs to be more than 34 minutes long, in my opinion. (Although a short but good CD is better than a long one that stinks.) What's on this CD is good, but since there isn't very much on it, I kind of feel like I might have overpaid a bit for it. But that was my own fault!
