19 swingin' instrumentals by the man behind much of the success of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons and Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels! Most of these have never been on CD before, and, as a special bonus, you get both the stereo and mono single versions of the hit Music to Watch Girls By !

I was a few years older when Palisades Park and Abigal Beecher grabbed my ears. Yeah, yeah, Freddy Cannon's singing, but...who DID that SOUND?
I got shivers, goosebumps and, even, sometimes, tears in my eyes, when I heard Rag Doll, Big Man in Town,Walk Like a Man, Dawn. Four Seasons, sure, but there HAD to be somebody else responsible for what I was hearing.
When Music to Watch Girls By hit the chart, I saw the name Bob Crewe. By Then, I might have learned he was in part--a BIG part--responsible for what I loved about Freddy Cannon and The Four Seasons.
I was old enough and enough of a music nut to see his name attached to Mitch Ryder's hits. Then came his own "Generation" hit and I learned there was much, much more. How wrote and produced the soundtrack for Barbarella movie? What group performed it? Yeah, him. And them.
Wow. Just wow.
Now, they've made the Broadway musical Jersey Boys, giving Crewe his due. Well, somebody should have interviewed the guy for hours before he died in 2014 (I think), written the book and done the movie about HIM. He is that fascinating.
Anyway, I'm a little weird because I also like so-called "easy Listening" instrumental music (a long-gone pop music genre that died as the 70s zipped into the 80s) so, it's great to have this ... compilation. Really great. I almost called it a "relic" (my kids would) but it's not, of course. Not if you really like this stuff.
