50 Favorite Albums: 23

The very first album from The Four Seasons (later, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons) was also the best that the group ever released. (December, 1963, their best song, came much later.) Expertly predicting which melody would be the runaway hit from the collection of, as the title depicts, twelve songs, The Four Seasons nailed every single track on Sherry & 11 Others, especially Sherry. This was a group that somehow managed to reinvent the identity of doo-wop groups all around the world. Sherry took the world by storm. The radio exploded with every element of the song. Big Girls Don't Cry just simply managed to rock it even further. This time, it was irrevocable.
