Better than Off-Seasons!

"If you're like me (absolutely love the stuff spanning from 1962 until about 1967 & can take or leave the later years) this collection is for you. The songs on here are outstanding and this is the only place on CD that you can find the Wonder Who singles ... You're Nobody Until Somebody Loves You is wonderful! If you can find it get it. While Off-Seasons is still excellent, this is really the one to own!"
What a groovy show!

"The 4 Seasons Rarities CDs were released as companion discs to the three CD 4 Seasons 25th Anniversary Collection, for people who want more than three CDs of the 4 Seasons. Most of the songs on this CD aren't particularly rare, having appeared on previous 4 Seasons albums. For the record, there are four songs from Dawn, three songs from Born to Wander, four songs from Rag Doll, two songs from The 4 Seasons Entertain You and three songs from New Gold Hits. There are a few genuine rarities. There is a jingle for a bowling alley and the theme song for disc jockey Cousin Brucie's radio show. And I'm pretty sure that the single "On the Good Ship Lollipop" and it's b-side "You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You" hadn't been on an album before (this was released under their gag name "The Wonder Who?"). Anyway, regardless of whether these songs are rare or not, most of them are quite good. There is a very strong selection of album tracks and b-sides, proving that the group recorded a lot of good songs that weren't released as singles. Of course, the absolute highlight is their silly rendition of "On the Good Ship Lollipop" (yes, the Shirley Temple song). If you want more than just the hits by the 4 Seasons, you should enjoy this CD."
