Big Girls Don't Cry and Twelve others… (Limited Mono Mini LP Sleeve Edition) CD

Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons
Big Girls Don't Cry and Twelve others… (Limited Mono Mini LP Sleeve Edition) CD

The 4 Seasons were and are one of the greatest vocal groups in the history of pop music, and their music has been plentifully available since the “dawn” (pun intended) of the CD reissue era. But there remains a very large gap in their catalog: their original albums have NEVER been available on CD in their original mono mixes! Which really makes no sense; not only were most consumers buying and listening to mono albums during the early and mid ‘60s, when the bulk of The 4 Seasons’ album catalog was released, but also the mono mixes were what the group and its producer Bob Crewe concentrated on and approved. Now, Real Gone Music is embarking on a monorail, er, monaural ride through the 4 Seasons album catalog, releasing the original mono album mixes on CD in chronological order, all taken from tape, and housed inside mini LP sleeves with old-style, “tip on” printing that replicates the original album art all the way down to the original Vee Jay logos. And handling the sound for us? The one and only Bill Inglot, who has been working with the 4 Seasons catalog for years (and the master was approved by Bob Gaudio himself)! This was the group’s sophomore smash LP from 1963, featuring “Walk Like a Man” and the title tune. Strictly limited edition of 2000!
