Description by

Description This terrific twofer pairs one of the 4 Seasons' best albums with the album that was definitely their most ambitious! The 1966 Philips release "Working My Way Back to You" takes its title from the monster hit that leads the album off, and hit #50 on the charts, while 1969's "Genuine Imitation Life Gazette" was the group's psychedelic answer to "Sgt. Pepper" and "Pet Sounds", with a big contribution from NYC singer-songwriter Jake Holmes, most famous for penning the Led Zep anthem "Dazed and Confused".

Product Description:

The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli (vocals).
Audio Remasterer: Bill Inglot.
Liner Note Author: Bill Dahl.
Recording information: Olmsted Sound Studio, New York, NY; Stea-Phillips Recording Studio.
Arranger: Charles Calello.
This twofer pairs a 1966 Four Seasons album, built around one of their biggest hits, "Working My Way Back to You," with a 1969 SGT. PEPPER'S-type concept album that was partly written by the cult '60s and '70s songwriter Jake Holmes (who also penned Led Zeppelin's "Dazed and Confused" and the U.S. Army commercial jingle, "Be All That You Can Be"). The former album is a collection of high-quality '60s pop by a band working at the height of its powers, while the curiously compelling latter set takes the form of a series of psychedelic musical newspaper articles about the group.
