Frankie Valley and The 4 Seasons - The Fantastic First Years
Frankie Valli is an American musician, most famous as frontman of The Four Seasons. He is well-known for his unusually powerful falsetto singing voice. Valli, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi, and Bob Gaudio, (the original members of The Four Seasons), were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999. Valli scored 29 Top 40 hits with The 4 Seasons, one Top 40 hit under The 4 Seasons' alias 'The Wonder Who?', and nine Top 40 hits as a solo artist. As a member of The 4 Seasons, Valli's number one hits included "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Walk Like a Man," "Rag Doll" and "December 1963 (Oh, What A Night)." As a solo artist, Valli scored #1 hits with the songs "My Eyes Adored You" and "Grease." Valli's recording of the song "Can't Take My Eyes off You" reached #2 in 1967. "You're Ready Now," a Valli solo recording from 1966, became a surprise hit in Great Britain, as part of the Northern soul scene and hit number 11 on the British pop charts in December 1970. This compilation is from the early years, recorded under different names (The Four Seasons released their first single in 1961 and the name Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons is from 1967).
