The Four Seasons discography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of singles recorded and released by Frankie Valli and/or The 4 Seasons in their various guises since 1953. This list includes only commercially released singles on which Valli or some configuration of the group was credited with performing or producing. Promotional-only releases and extended play records (EPs) are omitted from this list.

Reissued singles and records in which the Four Lovers did only session work (including singles by Danny & the Juniors, Freddy Cannon, and Bobby Darin) are also not included here.

US/UK singles discography[edit]

NOTE: Peak Chart Positions are from the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The UK chart positions of three singles are noted ("You're Ready Now", "Sleeping Man" and "The Night") because of their uniqueness in The 4 Seasons/Frankie Valli history. Their chart positions come from the book 'Guinness British Hit Singles' by Paul Gambaccini, Tim Rice and Jo Rice (sixth edition 1987).
