    Biography :

    The Four Seasons released their first single in 1961 ("Bermuda"/"Spanish Lace" on Gone Records). The single did not chart. The group began working with producer Bob Crewe as background vocalists, and sometimes leads under different group names like the Kokomos.  Both singles by the Kokomos on Gone and Josie records are the 4 Seasons with a different lead singer added in there. Frankie Valli is also in there, as he can be clearly heard on all 4 songs.


    Possible lead singers are: Bob Crewe / Matthew Reid / Kevin McQuinn or John Corey (aka: Johnny Saber) or yet another anonymous voice - no one seems to know. But positively it is the 4 Seasons with a Bob Crewe production.
