The Four Seasons career was on a downward spiral as the 1060s came to a close. The music landscape was changing and their brand of pure pop was not being recived as well as in the past. It would not be until the mid-1970s that they would make a comeback.
The Four Seasons began to tinker with their sound and “Saturday’s Father” was symbolic of their new style. The harmonies were still present but the songs and melodies were not as smooth.
The public re-action to their new style was poor as “Saturday’s Father” became one of their very few singles not to chart.
