Foot Stomps. Hand Claps. Wailing double-tracked falsetto. Close echoing harmonies.Thundering drums. Lyrics about love found…and lost.
These are the sounds that dominated the airwaves throughout the 1960s courtesy of four gentlemen from Newark, New Jersey.
The Seasons sound defined a wildly changing music landscape of a turbulent generation. Of course, where there are true originals, there are bound to be imitators. This compilation aims to cover just a smattering of aspiring artists trying to capitalize on a smash sound that overtook the nation.
You’ll find records from all over the USA: for example, check out Jersey-by-way-of-Texas on The Coastliners’ “I See Me”. There are also some “close to the source” copycats – featured artist spotlight group The Four Evers shared many of the same key producers, arrangers and writers that made the real thing a success.
Close your eyes and you might just find yourself believing it’s the real thing.
32 obscure tracks, including 6 tracks by The Four-Evers, all material from 1963-1967, with a detailed 16 page colour booklet with rare label scans and liner notes. All tracks digitally remastered and many have never been re-issued on CD before.
