Snapper Box Set - Four Seasons

Post by John »

Due out this summer, and only happening thanks to my friend Ken Charmer, is the boxed set that spans the whole career of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. What I'm expecting it to be:

One vinyl album being the unreleased Mono version of The Genuine Imitation Life Gazette
One coffee table book
43 CDs that will include:
Every released album in Stereo
Every released album in Mono
13 unreleased tracks from their time at Motown
Unreleased recordings pre-Four Seasons from the 1950s and early 1960s
Unreleased final tracks made for Philips records around 1970/1971
Unreleased 1970s disco album, first recordings of what became the Heaven Above Me album
Unreleased Four Seasons Orchestra for planned instrumental album
3 Live shows from 1970s, recorded from the sound desk
Lots of bonus tracks/alternate takes/extended versions, etc.

Sounds good to me, I'll let you know what the neighbours think later! Release date is mooted as June/July, but it's been delayed quite a bit by the pandemic already, so I'm expecting late 2022.....

Latest reports suggest August/September, so I'm guessing it will be in time for the Christmas market. Or just after.......

Come on guys, get it organised before we're all too old to care! :shock:

Pre-orders are now open, so mine has been sorted. The set is now in production, so it's just a matter of forgetting about it until one day a courier arrives to brighten up my day! There are 43 CDs and 1 LP, so at one a day that's 43 days of entertainment.
