AllMusic Review by

This 69-minute, 24-track disc is part of a series released by British reissue label Ace collecting all of The Four Seasons' and Frankie Valli's recordings for the Vee Jay and Philips labels during the 1960s. Contained here is the material from the two pop-oriented albums The Seasons recorded for Philips in 1965 (a busy year, during which they also recorded an LP of Bacharach/David and Dylan standards and a "live" album actually cut in a studio). The first, Entertain You, released in March 1965, was a throwback to the group's earlier style of building an album of covers around a hit single, the one in question being "Bye, Bye, Baby (Baby Goodbye)," not one of their biggest. The Seasons could do songs like The Diamonds' "Little Darlin'" in their sleep and so the album wasn't one of their best. Working My Way Back to You (January 1966), on the other hand, not only featured a big hit in the title track, but also a collection of new songs, some of which could also have been hits. This set appends the group's September 1965 single, "Let's Hang On (To What We've Got)" as a bonus track. (Contains annotations and discography.)
