Phil, To being them.

Jack M, Sorry if I was a bit harsh about Russell T.  Obviously 
from my words, he isn't one of my favourites but you can't knock 
success, and he was certainly very successful.

Paul/Stewart, It was Crewe that did the work on Edizione D'Oro 
and the work was needed because someone (and nobody's saying who) 
lost the original stereo mixes.  There are some quite substantial 
differences between what appears on that album and the original 45s.  
"Dawn" is the most obvious one, with a completely changed opening. 
So strong are some of those differences that when I first heard it, 
I was convinced it was a re-recording, and have spent many a happy 
hour arguing the toss.  Reluctantly, I had to concede a few months 

When the Seasons moved to Rhino, the company did an exhaustive 
world wide search for multi track tapes. The outcome, depending 
on who you talk to, was mixed. However, Bob Gaudio now says that 
they have most of the original 4 track mixes and are only now 
getting round to archiving their material properly.
