"...and this Anniversary collection has all their hits and then some. Including and especially the big hits (and seldom played on the oldies radio station) "I've Got You Under My Skin" and "Save It for Me". There are songs from the Wonder Who ("Don't Think Twice" and "Lonesome Road"), there are Frankie Valli solos ("The Proud One"--done also by toothy pal Donny Osmond--and "I Make A Fool of Myself") and great FV/FS singles which are simply stunning in their reach and originality ("Watch the Flowers Grow" "Electric Stories", "Saturday's Father")....this is it. Remember these cats held their own against the Beatles, the Supremes and 'the west coast Four Seasons' the Beach Boys. You will love this."

"Why Gaudio/Crewe, the guys behind most of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons' biggest and best hits, weren't/aren't as respected and revered songwriters as at least the dreaded brothers Gibb, will forever remain a mystery of gigantic proportions (at least to me). If in doubt of their genius, the evidence is all here; from the early hits that made the Four Seasons the East Coast's equivalent of the Beach Boys ("Sherry", "Big Girls Don't Cry", "Walk Like A Man", "Rag Doll") thru their late, brief and commercially unsuccessful '60s - yes! - psychedelic period (the amazing yet overlooked "Saturday's Father") onto the balladry of "Patch of Blue" and "The Girl I'll Never Know" (although Frankie's solo "Fallen Angel" is one notable omission here) and, on the comeback trail, their lucriative forays into seventies disco ("Who Loves You", "December 1963", "Grease"). And even when the Seasons covered the "classics" - "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", "I've Got You Under My Skin" - they still managed to come out on top and reinvent in their own style material which "definitive" readings of (The Shirelles and Frank Sinatra, respectively) had already been around for a good while. With most other acts, such attempts prove disastrous.Mostly, though, other acts have looked to the Gaudio/Crewe archives when in need of hits. The Walker Brothers ("The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore"), The Tremeloes ("Silence is Golden"), The Bay City Rollers ("Bye Bye Baby"), Donny Osmond ("The Proud One"), Andy Williams ("Can't Take My Eyes Off You"), Barry Manilow ("Let's Hang On") and even the late, uh, great Divine ("Walk Like a Man") have all seen fit to follow the Four Seasons path and often quite successfully at that (at least the Rollers and the Searchers scored No.1 U.K. hits in the process). And that is not to mention those who've nicked a lick or two from a Four Seasons record for prosperity (For instance, just compare the Doors' "Touch Me" to the Seasons' "C'mon Marianne"). With versatility, song power and the amazing voice of Valli as their weapons, there aren't many acts of the '60s and early '70s which topped or even rivalled the Four Seasons (Obvious contenders: The Beatles, Beach Boys, the Stones, the Byrds - bar none), and this collections displays all their strengths amply and justly. Rhino, we - once more - sallute you!"

"Amazing! One great song after another. These guys KNEW music inside and out. A classic compilation of some of the best pop music ever. Most CD's only have about 2 good songs on them. These CD's have only about 2 bad songs on them combined. Even the non-hits are harmonically interesting. If anything, this collection shows that the group should've had even more hits than the many they actually did."
