Honey Love 45 by The Four Lovers

October 21, 2010

The Four Seasons go back a long way; a really long way. They are best remembered for their series of hits from 1962 to 1970 which earned them induction in The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

The group actually formed as The Variatones in 1955 with lead singer Frankie Valli, Nick and Tommy DeVito, and Hank Majewski. By 1956 they had changed their name to The Four Lovers and obtained a recording contract with The RCA Label.

They would have one minor hit for RCA with “You’re The Apple Of My Eye” which reached number 62 during 1956.

My favorite song from this era was “Honey Love” which did not receive any chart action but presented The Four Lovers on the road to developing their signature sound. Not as good as their classic period but interesting nonetheless.
