    The Four Seasons - Working Our Way Back To You: The Ultimate Collection

    Yes, I know this hangs on the edges of the Motown universe, but I figured that for anyone who likes The Four Seasons and Frankie Valli AND liked and wanted more of their Motown material [which is here--released and unreleased], it would be helpful to know about this massive, detailed set that is coming in September 2022!

    Working Our Way Back To You: The Ultimate Collection
    "Over 44 CDs and 1LP, Working Our Way Back To You chronicles Frankie Valli's every stride through a career of 195 singles and 31 studio albums. The set includes a stunning multi-foldout reproduction of the original US packaging of The Genuine Imitation Life Gazette vinyl album [in its original mono mix, available here for the first time ever].

    The package includes an extraordinary assemblage of unreleased treats, rare treasures and long-unavailable mixes, including much sought after tracks the group cut for Motown. The boxed set also includes a 144-page hardback book, a separate singles book showing a multitude of picture sleeves from around the world, and a book of Collectors’ notes."

    Mind you, this isn't cheap--350.00 [which is about US $427.00]--but it's 44 discs, one vinyl record, and heavily annotated! It seems like a labor of love on this one and probably the last time something of this scale this will be released on The Four Seasons.

    The only thing that makes me sad is that as Motown/Universal has all but stopped their reissue program [whatever happened to The Supremes Expanded Edition series after "Sing HDH"...?], something like this gets green-lighted by another company and will hopefully sell very well.

    It's going to be a great release - hugely anticipated.

    Of particular interest to Motown fans are the previously unreleased songs and mixes included on Discs 21 and 22 such as "My Eyes Adored You" recorded whilst with Motown. "Stop, Look, Listen to Your Heart" is the Stylistics song and I believe will surpass the version by Diana and Marvin.

    Our very own Mowest Chameleon has contributed massively to this entire project and deserves huge thanks.

    Much of their Motown work is excellent and I always love listening especially to my favourites on a regular basis. And did someone mention "The Night"?

    Big News! I remember someone on this site saying that a Complete Box Set for Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons was in the works and now it's on it's way. Thanks for sharing.

    Shame the 3 CD's featuring the Motown tracks have not been issued as a stand-alone 3-CD set as well as in the box set!

    I agree booty. Perhaps the set will be released digitally in some way, where the albums would be available separately.

    I finally bit the bullet today and treated myself to this massive set! Two things... apparently, my mistake in saying this is coming out in September. I misread [thinking like the American I am] and saw 09-12-2022 and saw that as September 12, 2022. Turns out, coming from the UK as it is, the release date is 9 December 2022. Oops. My bad.

    For those in the US, the best price I have found at this point is from Pop Market for $464 plus tax and no shipping charge.

    Looks like I'll have a project to keep me occupied over the 2022 Christmas holidays with loading this big boy into my Apple Music!
