The 4 Seasons Live On

Broadway musicals based upon the music catalog of an artist or artists is increasingly becoming popular. The majority aren't that good, though some are much better than others, e.g. MAMMA MIA! and MOVIN' OUT. I hadn't seen or heard a catalog-based musical that I thought was outstanding. That was until I heard the soundtrack to JERSEY BOYS. I admit that many of the songs I had heard growing up because of my parents (they only listened to 1950-1960s music and Frankie Valli was a favorite of my Mom's). Still, even if I hadn't grown up listening to these songs, I think I would have enjoyed this album. The music is exceptionally done! Usually for a soundtrack I list some of my favorite songs from the album, but I enjoyed all of the music on JERSEY BOYS. I guess my favorite is "Ces Sorees-la" because I had never heard a foreign language version of "December 1963 (Oh, What a Night)" before. I also enjoyed how there are snippets of the show's dialogue scattered throughout the album. It helps to tie things together and give a listener an idea of the general plot of the musical. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys good music. You don't even have to like musicals to enjoy listening to this album.
