An excellent, if necessarily incomplete (only 12 tracks) best-of by one of the great underappreciated bands of the '60s. Some of their '70s hits are here as well, including the nicely nostalgic "December 1963 (Oh What Night)," and there's a cute if irrelevant dance remix of their early hit "Big Girls Don't Cry," but it's the '60s stuff here that really resonates. The song selection emphasizes the Season's pure pop side; in fact, thanks to Seasons songwriter Bob Gaudio's infectious tunes, lead singer Frankie Valli's seemingly helium-induced falsetto and, Bob Crewe's psychedelically vivid productions, one can make a reasonable case that the stuff here is the purest pop music ever made. Hear it and be changed forever.
