Movie Review: 'Jersey Boys' sings it like it was

Wednesday, July 2, 2014 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

After Frank Sinatra and before Bruce Springsteen (those other Jersey Boys), there was The Four Seasons, one of the top pop groups of all time, having sold 100 million records.

The Four Seasons were so popular, the group rivaled The Beatles on the record charts, resulting in the 1964 Vee-Jay promotional album, "The Beatles vs. The Four Seasons: The International Battle Of The Century."

The Four Seasons' recordings influenced not only Springsteen, but Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys and a generation of songwriters and hit-makers.
