In 1994, a remix of the Four Seasons' 1975-1976 number one song "December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)" returned it to the pop chart, peaking in the Top 20. Taken together, its two 27-week chart runs gave it the longest tenure ever on the Billboard Hot 100. To take advantage of the song's renewed popularity, Curb Records, the group's label, assembled this remix album of tracks from the '70s, '80s, and '90s. The disc begins with the 1994 remix of "December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)" done by Ben Leibrand and ends with an earlier revision, the 1988 remix of the song that hit the British charts that year and was done by Les Adams. Adams' version of "Learn How to Say Goodbye," a song from the 1992 album Hope + Glory, is also included, as well as Nigel Wright's mixes of that song, "The Naked I," "Love Has a Mind of Its Own," "Fly Like an Eagle" (a retitled version of a tune previously called "State of My Heart"), and "You and Your Heart So Blue" from Hope + Glory; "The Book of Love" from the 1985 album Streetfighter; and the hits "Who Loves You" and "Silver Star" from the 1975 album Who Loves You. This is certainly not an album intended for the Four Seasons' '60s fans. The group has maintained throughout its career a commitment to keeping musically current, whether that meant mentioning the Twist in its first hit, "Sherry," or taking on disco in the '70s hits. This album is full of '90s electro-pop, and the hope clearly is that the Four Seasons can extend the second honeymoon enjoyed by "December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)" with more dance hits, even though that doesn't seem likely to happen.
Where's the original version?
The best song by far on this collection WOULD be December 1963 - there's just one problem. There are two versions of it on the disc, and NEITHER is the original that came out in the mid 1970s. The first is some horribly gone wrong dance remix version, extended and with heavier beats. The second is called "Euromix", so you know that's not the real deal either. Find the album on iTunes for Best of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, and you'll find what you're really looking for.
The only song really worth getting is december 1963...but the rest of the album is alright
more than one song
highly recommend downloading december 1963, who loves you, and silver star. the rest of the album is ok. this will give you a little insight into the 1970's version of the band - the one that briefly tried to go out on their own without frankie valli. of course, if you listen closely, you will note that the great FV is indeed on most of the tracks.
