Album of the Day
Who Loves You
Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons had so many iconic singles in the 1960s that it's easy to forget they made great records in the 1970s as well. Case in point: WHO LOVES YOU, a Warner Bros./Curb collection that shows the Seasons successfully incorporating disco rhythms (and even a bit of synthesizer) into their classic harmony pop sound. Frankie Valli, whose solo career was then taking off, plays a reduced role here, but the other singers more than compensate, and the band's longtime producer-songwriter Bob Gaudio supplies some winners here including “Silver Star,” the Top 10 title track and “December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night),” which would become the group's all-time best-selling single. The Four Seasons were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on this day in 1990, and WHO LOVES YOU was a key career milestone for the Jersey boys.
